Superintendent Greeting from Dr. Louise Coleman and Mr. Greg Wright
Welcome to the 2016-2017 School Year,

This year we are excited about the changes we have worked hard on this summer to bring our school district closer to achieving our long term goals. Currently we are evaluating the programs, interviewing staff, scheduling professional development and working with new administrators on constructing new procedures around the district. It is important to have uniform procedures across the district while developing the staff to meet the demands of common core standards. Center stage this year will be a continuation of monitoring and measuring student growth and progress.
