2019 – 2020 School Year Theme
The district theme that was selected by the student council this year is: Be the Light, Lead. Students will be participating in various activities to strengthen and develop their leadership skills. The community is encouraged to join in– Purchase a 2019-2020 theme t-shirt (available at the elementary school office), attend school sponsored activities, and join us as we light today by being leaders.
2019 – 2020 District Goals
Each year the district competes in an internal evaluation process to determine what areas the schools need to focus on. The goals that have been developed are areas of focus for a three year period. When a goal is completed another is put into place. The district’s current five areas of focus are:
Acquire challenging curriculum and review all curriculum, ensuring that it is aligned and clearly described for all subject areas.
Focus technology resources to support educational programs, high student achievement and continuous improvement.
Develop formal programs to assess student progress in order to drive instruction and curricular improvements.
Develop formal programs for families to aid in their children’s education and engage the community in school development.
Strive for continuous professional growth resulting in exemplary performance leading to optimum student achievement.

After School Program in need of
The district runs an excellent after school program for students in kindergarten through junior high. There are many activities and programs that take place along with academic remediation and support. The district did not receive state funding to run the after school program for this year. So, we are researching out to business, community members, and grant agencies in an effort to find funding to keep our outstanding after school in operation. We are hoping that there are individuals and organizations who will help us fund this incredible program that helps so many students. If you would like to contribute to the Troy After School Program, please contact Dr. Jacob Francom, superintendent at 293-4321 or firstname.lastname@example.org
