The Board of Education and the Administration are launching a new initiative to guide WBRC School District through a 3-5 Year Strategic Planning Process. The purpose of this initiative is to help the district develop new goals and strategies for continuing to offer an excellent education for the students, while using scarce public education resources in the most effective and efficient way.
Stakeholder feedback is an important part of the planning process. Community members, parents, teachers, administrators, students, teachers and other district staff members were asked questions regarding strengths, areas to improve and vision for the district. This information will be shared at the retreat as well as other data regarding student performance and comparison to other districts.
The school board intends to use data and stakeholder input to make decisions and to set priorities for the district. Dr. Rod Green, Ph.D consultant from the Michigan Association of School Boards (MASB), will facilitate the planning retreat.
Dear Parents, Students, and Community:
“BACK TO SCHOOL.” Those words bring so many different thoughts and emotions to our students, staff, parents, and community. It means the summer is winding down and fall is right around the corner. It also means it is time for another school year to begin. It means the students at WB-RC will be back in the classroom for another great year of learning and growing. This summer our staff has been very busy preparing all of our buildings for the start of schools. Roof and summer projects are nearing completion and our custodial crews are putting the finishing touches on the interiors of all of our schools.
Administrators, secretaries, teachers and support staff have been busy this summer with hiring, scheduling, professional development and curriculum improvements, all in an effort to make this school year a huge success for all of our students.
In closing, please consider this an official “WELCOME BACK!” I am looking forward to seeing students back in the buildings with teachers on September 6. As always, please call my office if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions as to how we can continue to make West Branch-Rose City Area Schools a great place to teach and learn.
Superintendent of Schools
