A message from superintendent Rudolph “Rudy” Falana, Ed.S


I want to welcome employees, parents, students, and the community into the new 2016-2017 school year. It is through our team efforts that our students and our school system are able to excel in various areas. Your spirit of collaboration is both needed and appreciated, and I look forward to expanding that collaboration. We have a highly qualified and highly effective staff, dedicated to serving our students. Among them is a host of new staff, and we’re excited about the knowledge, skills, experience, and expertise coming with them.


Our vision continues to be one of high standards, outstanding performance, and excellence in student achievement. We will continue to be transparent as we build on previous successes as well as address our challenges. We have made some administrative changes that will prove to be in the best interest of everyone involved.


In the fall of 2016, our schools and school district will host an AdvancEd External Review Team. We appreciate the participation and support of all stakeholders who have taken a part in this process over the last couple of years. There are a lot of positive things going on, and evidence indicates we are headed in the right direction. We are anticipating a great report followed by a positive accreditation recommendation. As always, we appreciate your feedback, and look forward to a great year!
