As we move into the 2017-2018 school year it is my request that we continue the great things we are doing in our schools and keep an eye on some of the suggested ideas that could influence improvement in our schools and district.

Back To School Parents Letter

August 1, 2017

Parents, Patrons,

It is my opportunity to address you as we start a new school year. We have fantastic schools with great employees.  Our main goal is to hold to a positive district climate that can promote and improve student learning. We are blessed in the Piute valley to have communities working together on behalf of our children’s success.

Today we live in a world where federal mandates with good intentions sometimes drown out what matters most. These initiatives are cloaked in the concept or name of accountability, but unfortunately do very little to enhance student learning. High expectations, we know, are necessary for our children’s success and must be one of our quests, but more under the process of local control not federal mandates. I believe that all children can learn, but not in the same place or in the same way and children should not be viewed in a once size fits all paradigm of thinking. Luckily, here in Piute, our teachers are talented and understand the importance of individualized academic learning, have high expectations, find ways for all students to learn, as well as promote and encourage life skills. We have a student-centered school board and administrators who are collaborative and motivated in the quest of what is best for students.

This year the focus of Piute School District is to promote effective management of learning, school safety, technology evolution for student learning, effective use of data, productive professional development for teachers, continued improvement of the professional learning communities (PLCs), and continued improvement of district climate.

Nelson Mandel stated, “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world”. So let us gather as friends, teachers, community patrons, and learn and educate our students together for the betterment of Piute County School District.

Have a great year!!!!!!!!
