SEPTEMBER - NEW YEAR IS OFF AND RUNNING

From all indications, everyone is back into the groove of school and the new year is up and running.  We have been in school for a very short time, but it seems like most students have settled back into the school day process.  The excitement of a new school year can help a student stay focused for a few weeks, but then the excitement can fade.  Please continue to check on your students and they progress through the first nine weeks.  Just a reminder, parents can check on grade through our Power School program.  If you have misplaced your password for Power School, just contact your child's school office and we can get that to you.  As always, if you have questions, do not hesitate to contact your child's teacher.

As I have mentioned a few times in the past, Kansas has started a new school accreditation program.  The program is referred to as KESA, which is an acronym for Kansas Education System Accreditation.  This is a five year process in which each school district will conduct a needs assessment, choose goals based on the findings from the needs assessment, set up an action plan for each of the goals, implement the action plan and then analyze the results.  This process is done with the aid of an outside visitation team and the state.  At the end of the 5-year cycle, the state will determine if a school gets full accreditation or not. This is the first year of our 5-year cycle.  During this school year, our main focus is to complete our needs assessment and to set our goals.  We will use surveys, test data, committee meetings and other input to determine our goals.  We will be posting some of the KESA information here on this web site.  The process should be a good vehicle for us to take a look at what we need to do to improve so that our students will benefit.

September is a very busy month with all of the activities going on already.  On top of the normal activities, when you add in homecoming and Fall Fest, a student's life can become pretty hectic.  It is an exciting month, but very, very busy! 

 As always - I truly appreciate the support that this community shows for our students and our school.  Conway Springs is a great place to raise children!
    

Respectfully, 

Clay Murphy - Superintendent of Schools
