Fall is upon us and we are having a great year so far.  

The Board of Education had a great planning session early in the year and they have developed some priorities for the district that go along with what the State’s vision and school accreditation. The Board of Education established district priorities that need to be addressed. Those priorities are:

  • Meet every student’s individual needs

  • Engage Students in Authentic Learning

  • Provide a Nurturing, Safe Environment

The Framework for the State of Kansas Accreditation model is based on the 5 R’s

  • Relationships

  • Relevance

  • Rigor

  • Responsive Culture

  • Results.

There are four key factors the State is looking at to determine our success or readiness to help meet the State vision: Kansas Leads the World in the Success of Each Student. Those four factors are:

  • Kindergarten Readiness

  • Social Emotional Readiness

  • High School Graduation

  • Post-Secondary Completion/Attendance

Halstead-Bentley schools are working on combining the State’s vision and our priorities in order to focus on a plan for continuing our success as a school district and continuing to meet the needs of the parents and students in this district. The approved priorities for USD 440 are:

We want to thank you for your past support and your help in moving forward with the States vision and our local priorities.
