A BIGGER Approach to Educating Students = New Results

Education today is exciting and at the same time, a little overwhelming. Education is continuously changing – a different world than 1984 ... 1997 ... 2006. We have to prepare students for new technologies, new occupations and a lot of new innovation.


Yes, we still teach the basics - that’s the foundation of being educated. Learning just “the basics” used to be enough for good-paying jobs, but most of those positions no longer exist.


So, what are we doing to prepare students for a different world? We’re doing a lot of great things such as expanding the curriculum with programs that introduce new career opportunities in engineering design, digital electronics, business technology and biomedical innovation.


We are introducing new programs in the elementary grades to help students get on track quicker.  We are focusing on broadening technology skills at all grade levels.  We are expecting more from all students to better prepare them for the future.

There is so much more to tell!
