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
