8/27/2014: Community Engagement Plan
Dear Students, Staff, Parents, and Community,
Welcome to the 2014-2015 school year! I am very excited to welcome everyone back to school this year! Our vision is to provide educational excellence for all students. We will accomplish this through our mission to provide a foundation that fosters personal success for all students through an effective, innovative and positive learning environment.
The Transitional Colorado Assessment Program (TCAP) results are available to the public later this month. We will be presenting and discussing these results during the school board meeting on September 11, 2014 held in the conference room at the District Office. Last spring marked the end of TCAP, the longest running state assessment in the Nation. Across the state, schools are implementing new assessments, the Colorado Measures of Academic Success (CMAS) measures our students’ social studies and science knowledge and Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) will be measuring reading, writing and math skills. Our TCAP results give us much to celebrate and provide us direction for growth. Be proud of the high marks, because you are part of the team that boosted learning opportunities in our community. Whether you were the teacher in the classroom, a supportive staff member, or a parent reading to your little ones at night and helping your teenager with algebra, you made a positive difference and deserve to celebrate. Remember, TCAP is just one piece of the assessment puzzle.
The construction project is more than half way complete, ahead of schedule and slightly under budget. The locker rooms will be completed this week. The elementary addition will be completed by the end of August. The new Science, Math and VoAg/CTE building will be completed by the end of December. All landscaping will be completed this fall. “Patience, understanding and flexibility,” are the mantra for our staff this semester as we complete the construction and move into the beautiful new facilities. Our superior staff will work together to maintain safe learning environments for our students throughout this semester of construction. Hopes and dreams for our district drive my work and I want to be able to add yours to the vision, so please do not hesitate to share them with me. I look forward to our future work together.
Scott Cooper, Superintendent
