Message From the Superintendent:

Dear Families,

As we anticipate full five-day-a-week, in-person instruction for all students in September, we want to thank everyone for your support and patience as we navigated the pandemic together.

Our District continues to be a Community Eligible Program District. This program provides breakfast and lunch to all enrolled students at no cost to our families and it has been a huge success. For this program to continue, we need completed forms from each family. Please complete the Household Income Eligibility Form and return it to your child’s Principal. This form may also be found on our website under Departments and Services / Food Services.

Considering your continued and overwhelming approval of our school budget, we are able to provide the following new initiatives for the 2021-2022 school year:

  • Continued 1 to 1 technology for our students and teachers.
  • Increase our contractual bus fleet by two (2) buses. This will be five (5) buses added over the last three school years, which allows us to lower the student ratio per bus and provide door-to-door service for our students, Pre-K through fifth grade, unless they reside on a dead-end street where a bus cannot safely turn around.
  • Additional teachers in the following areas: English, Social Studies, STEM, Music, Art, Physical Education/Health, Arabic, Libraries, ENL, Psychologist, Speech, and Academic Intervention Services (AIS) for English and Math.
  • Increased Nursing staff (each school now has a full-time nurse).
  • Custodial and Cleaning Department additions.
  • We hired a full-time Director of Physical Education, Health and Athletics. This position will work to develop a strong and viable curriculum and look to expand our extracurricular and athletic offerings.

    In closing, I believe we are fortunate to be part of a community that places such a high value on investing in our students and schools. While we continue to work diligently for your child and our community, we ask you to be an active partner with us as we continue to move our District forward.

    Steeler Pride!
