Principal's Newsletter

    Posted by Nick Micensky at 5/30/2017

    Dear Parents,

          Another school year has come to a close. Although every year of my career has been great, the 2016-17 school year has been special for me. After a forty year career being an elementary school teacher and principal, I am retiring at the end of June. Thank you for sharing your children with me. It has been an honor that cannot be expressed in words. Also, thank you for the many expressions of best wishes for me in the future. They are greatly appreciated. I will miss you all!

     

          Earlier this month the Scott School Home & School Association honored the teaching staff during National Teacher Appreciation Week.  Thank you! As always, it was fantastic. I would also like to thank Mrs. Butler, our Home & School president, and Mrs. Riddle, Our School Family Community Partnership (SFCP) president, for their service to Scott School.

Strategic Blueprint

  • District 203’s FOCUS 2020 Strategic Blueprint

    Posted by Superintendent Dan Bridges at 6/27/2014
    FOCUS 2020 is the strategic plan for comprehensive improvement between 2014 and 2020, designed in response to community feedback, best practice, and a vision for the future. Ultimately, this blueprint will advance the fulfillment of the district’s mission.
     
    FOCUS 2020’s foundation is the Future Focus Community Engagement process that occurred over the course of a year where hundreds of members from across the community provided feedback to the district leadership regarding areas such as facilities, finances, measuring student success, and programs of study. Learn more about Future Focus by clicking on the specific “Quick Link” to the left of this text.
     
    The Blueprint includes four “Strategic Focus” areas, namely to:
    1. Design and implement effective practices that promote learning experiences for all.
    2. Foster a high-performance culture focused on student learning.
    3. Steward resources effectively to promote student learning.
    4. Effective communication and community relations.
    Each Strategic Focus then establishes “Commitments.” These commitments are what the district leadership pledges to accomplish within a distinct timeframe. Each commitment then includes a detailed “Action Plan” which will be accessible by the public upon final draft.
     
    District administrators provided an update on Blueprint Commitments to the Board of Education at the July 27, 2015 meeting.  To watch that presentation, please click here
