Superintendent's Message

Dear Field Families,

March has certainly roared in like a lion. Snow days have not gone away. We hope the weather improves asap. As of this writing, we have one day of school to make up. As of this moment, the final day of school for students will be Thursday, June 7. We will update you if this date changes. Spring break is only a few weeks away. When we return, testing will be a dominate part of the calendar for several weeks. Your students will be very busy during that period. Make certain they are able to find time to rest, relax and have some fun over spring break. They all deserve some down-time. I do not comment on pending legislation very often. I feel compelled to make a comment on House Bill 512. This proposed legislation would consolidate the Department of Education, the Department of Higher Education, and the Office of Workforce Transformation into one department. There are many arguments about why this could help streamline the function of these departments. I have one big concern, our young students. Combining these departments puts a focus on college and career. There is no doubt that our job in K-12 education is to prepare students for their future. My concern is that the focus will shift away from younger students. From the moment young people enter school they are learning the building blocks they will use over and over as they advance. A good education, right from the start, is the key to success as students’ progress through the grades. We all know why there is a focus on the finish line, but remember; to get to the finish line you need a great start.

Thank you for your continued support of our district!  Go Falcons!

Yours in education,
