School District Plans Improvements

TCSD

Members of the public are being invited to visit with Teton County’s School Board later this week about provisions contained in the district’s just-adopted strategic plan.  Superintendent Pam Shea says the plan is the result of two years of work by teachers and administrators working with the school board.  She says a thorough data collection was done along with an analysis of the district’s strengths and weaknesses; and from that, she says they examined what objectives the district wanted to accomplish in the next two years and what specific strategies should be in place in order to achieve those goals.  Shea says there are four major categories for those goals.  Those include improving students’ academic success from Kindergarten through 12th grade, ensuring a safe, caring and healthy educational environment, improving effective and efficient operations, and increasing community and stakeholder involvement.  Each of those categories contains steps to accomplish the broader objectives, and those steps specifically for the fourth goal will be discussed in two public workshops.  One of those workshops is Thursday in the county commission chambers beginning at 5:30 pm.  Shea says another will be held December 10th at the Old Wilson Schoolhouse community center.  Those wishing to view the specific points of the plan may find it posted on the Teton County School District #1 website.

  • Diapers weren’t a magic bullet for staying cool - July 25, 2014
    I promised you yesterday that I’d test a new product to see how well it works to keep you cool when the temperatures climb toward triple digits.   In case you missed it, yesterday I talked about seeing an ad on TV for a new type of training pants. The ad said, and I quote, […]
