Superintendent Ed Graff presented his annual State of the Schools address to elected officials, business, community and district leaders on Friday. Superintendent Graff’s remarks focused on the positive impact being made on students’ lives and how Destination 2020 shapes the district’s framework for success.


The framework is built around four areas: focusing on students, investing in staff, engaging the community and strengthening district services.


“Our focus is on students. It’s the most critical part of our work. The students are why we are here,” said Graff.


He went on to say, “We know that no matter how successful we are and how many accomplishments we achieve - small or great - there will always be more to do. That’s the nature of what we do: to educate all students for success in life.”


The State of the Schools address is available to view online.
