Director's Note

  •   Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year. Today's graduates must be prepared for the ever-increasing demands of college and the workplace. This year we will continue to update and expand courses in our Career Pathways at both the intermediate and high schools.  I am also very excited about our new Career Technical Education (CTE) units of study we will be piloting at 8 of our elementary schools using the nationally recognized Project Lead the Way (PLTW) engineering curriculum.  Our goal in Career Technical Education (CTE) is to equip students with the knowledge, skills, and abilities necessary to move on to whatever career path they choose.
