Our motto this year has been “Our Focus Is Student Success.” In Todd County we believe each child is unique, and it is our responsibility to provide the best education possible in an environment that is challenging, yet caring and inviting.
Our District community believes in a strong commitment to education, and that dedication is very evident in the programs and opportunities available to our children. Our focus on the whole child means students are educated to become successful, productive citizens who are critical thinkers and who exhibit strong moral character. Our goal is to help each child reach his or her fullest potential.
In Todd County, we strongly believe that children learn best when educators develop meaningful partnerships with parents; we encourage and value input and feedback from home. We believe in working together for the benefit of our children and families. Thank you to all of our families who chose to take an active role in their student’s education this school year. Your caring does make a difference, and is greatly appreciated!
As I think about this school year, my first as superintendent, I believe we have made some significant positive changes that will benefit the education of our students. That being said, we have not been without our challenges! As a District, we will continue to focus on making decisions that put student success at the forefront.
