Today Matters - Superintendent's Blog
Sometimes the completion of a school year can feel like an ending of sorts. However, in many ways, it is a beginning to what’s next. Students will be moving on to a new grade. Some will attend a new building, entering 1st Grade or Middle School. Some teachers may be moving into new positions within the District. Some longtime teachers will be entering a new phase in life — retirement. Some instructional materials will be replaced with new, more comprehensive, well-reviewed, updated curriculum. Some school initiatives and practices will be looked at closely to find new opportunities for improvement.
