  • Special Education Plan Available for Review
    The school district's special education plan is an action plan that describes the special education program and services that are provided within a school district and those special education programs and services which are accessed by the school district from outside the school district's geographical boundaries.  A special education plan reflects ongoing programs and services and incorporates anticipated changes in programming as a result of corrective action generated by cyclical monitoring, improvement planning, and other factors. The school district's special education plan is aligned to a three-year cycle which corresponds to the school district's comprehensive plan cycle, so that the information in the special education plan can be applied to the school district's comprehensive plan, especially the professional education and induction programs. The community is invited to review the Special Education Plan here.

  • School Food Program

    For the past two years, under US Department of Agriculture (USDA) Waivers provided during the pandemic, we have been able to provide breakfast and lunch to ALL students at no cost. Current communication from the USDA indicates that waivers are not going to be extended for the 22-23 school year, meaning that we and other districts will once again be required to charge for meals.
