Marking the Middle
January 18 marks the beginning of the second semester, which means the 2021-2022 school year is already halfway complete. As I get older, the school years seem to pass by faster and faster.
Over the last several months, our strategic planning committee finalized the action steps that we are currently working toward specific to improving communication, elevating student experiences, aligning student learning with future success, and building a strong culture. For details on the plan, check out the strategic plan webpage.
As we’ve talked with area employers, it’s clear that our students need more than academic skills. A team representing parents, staff, administrators, employers, community, and higher education will engage in creating the Cory-Rawson “Portrait of a Graduate” over the next five months . We will answer three questions:
What are the hopes, aspirations, and dreams we have for the young people in our community?
What skills do our kids need to be successful in a changing world?
What implications does this have for Cory-Rawson Local Schools?
Stay tuned for these answers by summer, which will be here before we know it! In our hearts, the Green and Gold.
Jay Clark, Superintendent
