MELIN: Important information for students, parents

(Continued)

Information will be presented in two-hour sessions at the events beginning from noon until 8 p.m. Parents and students must report at the beginning of a session time and plan to stay the full two hours. Parents with students in different grade levels can choose to attend one session time that best fits their schedule. Session times are:

• noon to 2:00 p.m. (elementary)

• 1 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. (middle)

• 2 to 4 p.m. (high)

• 4 to 6 p.m. (elementary)

• 5 to 7 p.m. (middle)

• 6 to 8 p.m. (high)

It’s imperative for students and parents to attend their school’s specified rollout night. Implementation of the one-to-one initiative will allow our students to acquire the necessary 21st century proficiencies to be prepared for college and careers.

Our strategic plan that was board approved last spring goes into full effect this school year. Our vision is to become nationally recognized as a premier provider of education by serving as the bridge connecting stakeholders to ensure all students are college and career ready, and our mission is for stakeholders to give 100 percent effort in meeting the academic and behavioral needs of each student, ensuring acceptance to a post-secondary opportunity.

In order to assure our students are college and career ready, we will be continuing the implementation of our IMPACT program, which provides individualized enrichment for students in terms of their reading skills and behavior. We will also implement a K-12 literacy framework that is designed to enhance our students’ reading and writing skills at all grade levels and in all subject areas. 

In order to begin orienting our students to potential post-secondary opportunities, all sixth and ninth graders will take a careers course next school year. The purpose of the class is to provide students with information that will help them better determine the education/training necessary to meet their career goals.
