Superintendents Message:

Dear Parents,

"All in" for student achievement

Education experts agree that there is no single reason that explains lagging test scores.  But one thing is certain, the school board is tackling the problem.

Trustees have begun the process of revitalizing the five-year district strategic plan to articulate its long-term goals and priorities and provide overall strategic direction for our schools.  Strategic planning is the process of looking at all aspects of our schools and planning how to move them forward.  It provides the 'big picture' of where we are, where we are going, and how we are going to get there.  The plan will focus on academic achievement, challenges to overcome, opportunities to take advantage of, and the values that should guide the district,


New math curriculum, aligned with state common core standards have been adopted and language arts will follow.  Principal Rick Hale, McCain Middle School is confident that "with our newly aligned K-8 math curriculum and our current efforts to align language arts district wide the middle school scores will show significant improvement."


There is energy and enthusiasm to develop a strategic plan 2016-2021.  Forward thinking trustees and building administrators are on board to reshape and strengthen educational opportunities.  Kipp McKenzie, Payette Primary School principal is "excited about our district-wide efforts regarding data, curriculum, and student achievement.


The Initiative for Developing Mathematical Thinking (IDMT), a state-renowned consulting group, will provide professional development for teachers and administrators.  The goal is to enhance student achievement in mathematics.  DMTI believes that all students can succeed in mathematics and that teachers have perhaps the most significant impact on student learning.  MaryBeth Bennett, Principal, Westside Elementary School "looks forward to increasing my capacity to observe DMT indicators in math instruction."


The plan for academic success involves working together to make certain that there is discussion and collaboration across the district.
