     March is a very busy month.  The end of the 3rd nine weeks takes place the first Friday in March and then it is on to the final nine weeks of the year.  Spring sports are up and running and competitions actually begin for some at the end of the month.  You have the school play going on as well as power lifting meets and other activities.  On top of this, we throw in the change to Daylight Savings Time and of course spring break and we have one crazy, busy month.   

     I doubt that many school districts have not in some way addressed the latest school tragedy that happened in Florida in February.  We take school safety very seriously and each time something like this happens, all school begin reviewing what they do.  One thing that we use to do here and have not done for a few years is to run trained dogs that detect contraband and firearms in our schools and parking lots.  We will begin this practice once again this spring and will continue it next year.  Our hope is that absolutely nothing is found in our schools, however, we have to take some of these measures in the world we live in today. We are also working with the board of education to look at other safety precautions we can take here.  We will be looking at adding additional security layers as we move forward.  As always, if you or your student see something on social media or hear anything out of the ordinary, please do not hesitate to contact your school.  It takes all of us to make our school and community a safe place for our kids. 

     I have talked about the new (KESA) Kansas Education Systems Accreditation process that began this past fall.  We are in the first year of a five-year process in which we take a look at our weaknesses, set goals, and work to improve in those areas.  Throughout this process, we have already made several changes and will continue to make changes as we move forward.  We feel that these changes will help our students find greater success as they work through their school years.   Something new that KESA has provided is some new ratings based on various pieces of information and data.  In looking at our school scores and ratings, we rank extremely high when compared to all schools in south central Kansas and beyond our region.  No school district is perfect and we already are seeing areas where we need to improve.  However, in looking at test scores, attendance rates, post-secondary success of our students and other factors, parents, community members, teachers, staff, administrators and board members should be extremely proud of the results that have been shown.  I have always felt that we have a good school system here, but when you see statistics that back up your opinion, it makes it even better!

     I am hopeful that we are getting close to the end of winter weather.  This has been a strange year in the sense that all of our ice storms have come in overnight and that makes for a rough early morning decision.  Hopefully this is all behind us now and we can look forward to better weather and rain that does freeze!!

 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!
