A 1 to 1 technology initiative has provided students with an opportunity to become self-directed and enables our school district to provide greater chances to thrive in our community and beyond. A strong support system through our Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) provides students and staff to meet the needs of every student in every classroom. School counselors and mental health practitioners utilize a variety of methods to meet the vast needs of our students to remove roadblocks in their lives to further create self-directed learners who thrive in our community and beyond.
