Superintendent’s Message – September 2015
newly-elected School Board has set the stage for an aggressive and exciting
direction toward an academic rebirth for School District 205. Their adopted goals shall direct the
District’s mission in ensuring each child’s need for success be fulfilled. To this end, progressive, measurable and
accountable actions by students, teachers, support staff and administrators
will be taken to transform District 205.
immediacy of the School Board’s goals will be illustrated through
curriculum programming: International
Baccalaureate Program, Advanced Placement Program, AVID and Title I projects to
name a few; shattering negative statistics by reducing drop-out rates and
raising student daily attendance and graduation rates; reducing discipline
problems and raising academic achievement; reducing parent/community apathy and
increasing parent/community involvement, and reducing “islands” of excellence
and increasing institutions of excellence.
These programs will take time to manifest themselves into the reality that we aspire
and that is how it should be. However,
with fidelity every day, every student in every classroom will have a teacher
who is concerned about his/her education.
the people of School District 205, will diligently strive with focused pace and
sincerity into a transformational future.
Please join us as we carve out a dynamic future of success for your
