It is a privilege to serve the Reeds Spring School District. As our schools excel, the Board of Education continues to look to the future for additional positive changes by developing relationships that will maximize our ability to educate all students. Public education is an avenue to change lives, address poverty and achievement gaps, and to challenge our very brightest to utilize all of their abilities. We are excited about playing such a critical role in the development of our youth.
Our teachers will continue to challenge and teach using the very best teaching strategies. Each of our schools uses its PLC time to look at instruction and how we can better serve our students. We continue to examine research-based instructional strategies in order to make sure we are on the cutting edge of instruction. We live in a technological age and are committed that students learn through the use of technology. We will continue to infuse additional technology into the classroom in order to prepare our students for the challenges of the future. Our 1:1 laptop initiative at the high school is one of many new steps that we will be implementing in the area of technology. We will work as a team in order to better serve the needs of students.
We expect all students to reach their full potential and contribute responsibly in our society. As we pursue our mission, we invite and encourage the participation of all of our constituents. We know it is critical that we strive to build lasting relationships with students, parents, staff, and the community. Each relationship must be nurtured in order to achieve superior results.
The Board of Education has always encouraged school staff to motivate students by providing the necessary skills for their success. With this in mind, the Board continues to support new programs, actively encourages online learning, and promotes the development of learning plans that meet the individual needs of each student.
We, as a district, continue to set the bar high to ensure our students are ready for the 21st century. Research-based cutting edge instructional programs, technology embedded learning, and staff that care about the success of all students make Reeds Spring Schools a great place to be.Michael Mason
