Exciting Year Ahead

366

During the 2019-2020 school year, Emmons School District will embark on a self-reflective, school improvement project. The goal of the project is to develop a focused comprehensive plan that will direct the district’s efforts toward providing the best education for the students. The planning process will center around the school’s mission: “Working together, we educate, nurture, and grow our students for a successful future.” Our staff wants to ensure we are addressing the full spectrum of each child’s needs as we reflect on our programs and support systems.

To engage in this long term strategic planning process, Emmons school will invite all stakeholders in the district to become involved, staff, parents, school board members, and the residents and business owners of our community whom our school serves. Structured conversations and surveys, designed to identify the strengths and areas of growth for the district, will first take place internally. Then the community will be invited to participate in small group discussions designed to bring forth the collective community perspective of the school district. 

This year-long process will result in a three year improvement plan. The district wants to give ample time for this project to ensure all stakeholders have a voice and that the end result is an achievable plan to provide an even better educational program for our students.

Community members and parents should be on the lookout for future communications regarding specific meeting days and times for the community forums or online surveys. Our district values our community’s and parents’ input and we look forward to engaging in this dialogue to better serve our students.
