    Strategic Plan Improvement Goals

    1. Ensure a school culture where every student is respected, safe, academically challenged and engaged.
    2. Ensure rigorous and relevant learning opportunities.
    3. Ensure high quality and effective personnel in all positions.
    4. Ensure strong partnerships with students, families, and community.
    5. Ensure district resources support the strategic plan.

    District items of interest:

    The next regularly scheduled school board meeting is October 30, 2017    6:00 pm, Superintendent’s Office.

    Enrollment:  862.4

    Ensure a school culture where every student is respected, safe, academically challenged and engaged:

    • October 18th is our next early release for professional development.  The training for all staff is ACES training and Suicide Prevention. 
    •  Middle School Homecoming Week is scheduled for Oct. 16-20. The Dress up Days are as follows: Monday-Mathlete vs Athlete (dress as an athlete or nerd), Tuesday-Hawaiian Day (appropriate attire for school), Wednesday-Workout Wednesday, Thursday-Costume Day, Friday-Spirit Day (Black and Orange).

    Ensure rigorous and relevant learning opportunities:

    • The MS is in the process of applying for an Intensified Algebra grant to help increase student success in that area. 
    •  White Hatter Assembly:  Helps students to pro-actively understand the enabling power of digital technology and mobile communications but also how to mitigate the sometimes unintended consequences of high risk/un-desirable on line behavior.  This assembly has been scheduled for Oct 31st  for the MS and HS students. 
    •  Rachel’s Challenge has been scheduled for November 15th for MS and HS.  This will have a parent/community component as well. 

    Ensure high quality and effective personnel in all positions:

    • Please welcome Trevor Jenkins as our MS custodian.  Trevor will also help with the After’s meal program. 
    •  We are currently looking for Assistant High School Boys Basketball coach. 

    Ensure strong partnerships with students, families, and community:

    • The Community Carnival is set for October 28th.  HS students are organizing and running the event.   
    •  The elementary school is organizing a Trunk or Treat event for October 31st ….Halloween!
    •  Parent Conferences are set for November 2nd and 3rd.  November 2nd the conference hours will be 12:00-7:45 and November 3rd the conference hours will be 10:00-5:45.  The hours are staggered this way to accommodate parents that need to be able to come in after their work hours. 
    •  November 2nd in the elementary multi-purpose room there will be a resource fair.  It is a fair for parents to learn about the available resources in the area.
    •  The Veteran’s Day Assembly is scheduled for November 9th at 9:00 am.  This is a district-wide assembly put on by our HS student leadership to honor our local Veterans. 

    Ensure district resources support the strategic plan:

    The “After’s” Supper program has started.  First day numbers indicate 55 are participating in an after school meal.
