Welcome to our district website.  I hope this will be a great resource for you as you seek information about the District.

As the Board of Education and I continue to focus on our five year strategic plan, I would like to reflect back on our progress with the plan.  We have conducted ten community and focus group meetings and received great feedback from our community about the strategic plan.  Our weekly emails have also been very well received by the community and are a focal point of our communication goal.  The Board of Education is very pleased with the progress made in increasing the transparency of the governance of this District through these mediums.

The Board and I would like to encourage the public to review the goals of our strategic plan and our progress in attaining them by clicking here.

As I close, I would like to restate the Board of Education’s thanks to you for your support, and to reaffirm my commitment to you that we will work hard every day to continue to earn that support.
