Superintendent’s Welcome Back to School Letter
Dear Parents, Students and Community Members:
It is with enthusiasm that I write this year’s “Back to School” letter to all those who play such an important role in the educational process of our district’s students. Each school year brings anticipation, excitement, and with many, anxiety of what the new school year may bring. As we begin this school year I wish the greatest success for all of our students.
In retrospect, the past school year brought new faces, new arrangements and new challenges to our district. At the elementary level, we targeted Reading and Mathematics of areas of concern, and we anticipate an increase in our state assessment scores in these two categories. This year we will continue to focus in those areas as we prepare our learners for academic challenges in their future. At the middle school level, we will continue our focus in ELA, Mathematics and Science as we adopt to the new Missouri Learning Standards and prepare for the annual Missouri Assessment Program (MAP) assessment process. At the same time, we will be preparing our students with the tools they need to succeed at the next academic level. In the high school, we intend to increase our scores on the End of Course tests (EOC), ACT preparation for the junior class, and prepare our students to be college and career ready by the time they graduate.
As we all know there are many challenges ahead with the 2016-2017 school year. Unfunded state and federal mandates, new state mandates, continued maintenance and upgrades to facilities, seeking the resources to continue our technology upgrades, are just of few of the challenges we will face. Our ultimate goal through the processes should be to always do our best to meet the needs of each and every student.
The continued building of our partnerships with our district’s families and our community stakeholders is vital to a successful school setting. We are here to serve our students and I look forward to the 2016-2017 school year with great anticipation!
