The Strategic Plan
The Strategic Plan is a living document representing a vision for the school community. The plan is a culmination of 12 months of collecting input from community members, educators, parents, and students. The school board and administration appreciate each person who participated in the community-wide survey or attended an input session to provide their insight and expertise. Together, we are engaging and inspiring students to achieve and become leaders who make a difference.

The federal No Child Left Behind Act requires all states to test all students in reading and mathematics in grades 3 through 8 and once in high school.
