Improving Our Community By Producing Successful Lifelong Learners

Message from the Superintendent

Junior team and Board

Sunday, December 3, 2023

Good Sunday Evening,
I want to thank all the folks who made it to all the events and meetings, it was an unusually busy week last week.  I heard the student and parent EMC meetings went well.  Now that those have concluded, we will be meeting with interested students individually or in small groups soon and we will answer any questions that students or parents still have.  We are also still collecting EMC questions so that we may create a master document of the most common questions that we can then answer and post for everyone to review.  Also, if you have an individual question, please feel free to email me directly at [email protected]
Also, the Facility Community Meetings went well last week.  We are still looking for community voices to be heard. Our teachers and staff have done a wonderful job contributing input but we still are looking for more community voice.  So, at the meetings, there was a survey opportunity that was given to those folks that attended but I would like to share it with everyone now, so that if you would still like to contribute you can.  The surveys are only 3-4 questions each and if you have an opinion to share, please feel free to do so.  FYI - I believe the surveys close after today.   
Intermediate/Middle/HS School Survey: Closed
East/Inverness Survey: Closed

Also, as we continue our work, we are doing our best to keep our new “Facility Planning” page updated so that anyone in the public can stay up to date by connecting to this site and review the information on our new page.  If you would like to check it out, please go to Facility Planning Page >
Last Thursday we conducted our final Strategic Planning meeting.  We will be wrapping up our work and making final touches to our new proposed Mission, Vision, and Belief Statements to be shared with the Board at the December meeting for public review.  Once approved, these statements will be our guiding North Star for the next 3-5 years. 
A big thank you to the NMU Education Department for allowing us to participate in their Mock Interview process last Friday.  We sent a small team to network with their 55 December graduates.  We were also given the privilege of interviewing 16 future candidates directly.  We met some wonderful young teachers, collected a lot of resumes, and made some great connections with the NMU Education Department.
