ANNUAL REPORT

We are exceptionally proud of the publication of our 2021 Annual Report because it highlights the numerous supports we had in place during the COVID-19 global pandemic.

In June of 2018, the Board of Education adopted a strategic plan with the involvement and engagement of staff, students, parents, community members and business leaders.

STRATEGIC PLAN

The five strategic plan goals identify 13 priorities for the district to assess and analyze. Beginning this fall, the district action plan committees will study and define next steps.

As such, the district believes that community engagement and collaboration between our staff, parents and residents are pivotal to the success of our students. The district has a volunteer program in place designed to strengthen partnerships between schools and our communities while preserving and enhancing educational opportunities for all students within the school district.
