    On January 23, 2020, the district convened approximately 150 people for the second annual State of the Schools address. The event was open to the public and participants included students (grades 5-12), parents, support staff, teachers, administrators, school board members, city leaders, and state representatives. The purpose of the event was to share the district’s “Profile of a Graduate” and to gather feedback regarding our progress toward our three strategic goals.
