The mission of the Alexander Central School District is to challenge students to be confident, contributing learners within a structured, safe, and caring environment.
Dear Alexander Families,
Welcome to 2018! The new year always brings with it an opportunity to reflect on the year that was along with excitement about the year to come. As we enter the new year, Alexander remains committed to our four year goals focused on teaching and learning and our learning environment. Our goals frame all of our work to ensure that our students have the highest quality educational experience possible.
Creating the conditions for student success involves our entire community - parents, teachers, community members, our Board of Education, administrators, and students. One of our goals focuses on engaging all of these stakeholders in collaborative processes to move the work of the District forward. Last Spring, a committee gathered to reconsider our committee structure. With that new structure and our goals related to engagement in mind, our technology, wellness, and safety committees are all up and running with representatives from across the community - including students - involved in the work. Bringing our community together in committees around our goals is essential work.
In early 2018, two more committees will be forming - our capital project committee and our policy review committee. Our capital project committee will engage in the work of creating a vision for our District for the next five to ten years in terms of teaching and learning and our facilities. Our policy review committee will take up the work of reviewing and updating our policy manual in order to ensure fair and consistent organizational practices. If you are interested in serving on either of these committees, please give me a call or send an email to email@example.com to volunteer.
The mission of our District is to challenge students to be confident, contributing learners within a structured, safe and caring environment. With our collective efforts around this mission in the service of teaching and learning, we can ensure that as a community, we create the conditions for all of our students to thrive. I look forward to our continued collaboration in the new year!
