I am pleased to take this opportunity as the Superintendent of the Mexico Academy and Central School District to share with you some of our core beliefs and academic accomplishments. We will continue to create meaningful opportunities for student-growth through the talents of an innovative, creative, and forward-thinking staff – we have a proven record of transforming challenges into opportunities. In 2012-13, we will see examples of these transformations in our schools that will include: Additional opportunities for rigor in our middle and high schools; a new, elementary school math program; and new ways to use data to guide student learning. Integrated throughout the PreK-12 curriculum will be an emphasis on literacy that is aligned with Common-Core standards and focuses on improved student achievement. At the start of the 2012-13 School Year:
Remember, the CDEP is an overall action plan for MACS... building principals, department heads, and community shared-decision making teams will be creating action plans at the local school level that are aligned with the CDEP over the course of the 2012-13 school year. The CDEP also represents our FOCUS on Curriculum, Instruction, and Climate - our rallying points towards improved student outcomes.
If we are to continue on our upward trend concerning student achievement, we must persistently focus on providing students with the innovative and rigorous learning opportunities that our families and residents have come to expect from our school district. Each of our schools will continue to develop academic programs that promote mastery of complex problems, analysis of multiple sources of information, and the communication of difficult ideas to wide audiences.
We remain committed to efficient operations that focus on high student outcomes. We will continue to work with parents and families to enhance our students' experiences. I encourage all parents to get involved and stay involved throughout the school year. Our administrative team is available to address any questions you may have about our school district. Our collaborative efforts and family partnerships will ensure that all children are successful and reach their full potential.
