Dedicated to excellence in education
From the Superintendent's Desk
Dear Community Member,
This past week, I found myself pausing multiple times as I observed the use of technology in each building of the District. Teachers were presenting lessons, students taking assessments and practicing their skills, administrators sharing materials and so much more. Over the past few years, hundreds of thousands of dollars have been invested in the District to support the use of technology in all aspects of teaching, learning and general operations.
I encourage all of our families to log into the student management system (eSchool Data) and create a parent portal that will allow you to see in real time your students attendance, grades and teacher comments. The tool is very helpful in maintaining an open dialog with your child and teachers at the school. Although as a powerful tool, it does not replace a phone call or request for a conference with your child’s principal, counselor or teacher.
We are constantly working to improve our use of social media to build our website, FaceBook and Twitter presence. Once again, please consider spending some time on the District Website. There are many resources for parents and families to take advantage of. If you are looking for real-time updates, consider following one of the many Twitter feeds coming from the school. I think you will find that our schools are on the move and there is a great deal to look forward to this school year.
As always, I hope that you will make an effort to reach out and say hello when you see me around the schools and town, by email at email@example.com or follow me on Twitter @DrStopinski
