Dear Plain Local Community,
Thank you! Those two simple words cannot express the immense appreciation and gratitude that I have for the entire Plain Local community. I realize this year has been challenging with many changes and unknowns, but I am grateful that through it all we have worked together. Keeping schools open has been difficult at times, but the benefits of having kids in school outweigh the challenges as long as safety protocols are followed. I am proud that our children are receiving a great education both in-person and online. We have another semester to tackle, but we can accomplish that together as one community!
This January Plain Paper is full of amazing stories of success at every level, I hope you take some time to read about what our students have been up to. Our students and staff are doing great things in all of our buildings and I am encouraged with our growth. While it may look different, our students have risen to the challenge. I am thankful for all of our staff members and the care and concern they take each day with our children. As a parent, I am confident with the education my children receive each day in Plain Local Schools.
Also, I am excited to introduce the district’s strategic plan for 2021-2025. Your thoughts and aspirations are included in the plan that was developed with multiple stakeholders across the community. We can never stop improving and looking to the future as a school district to grow the entire community. I hope you will take a few moments and review the plan and I will continue to update the community on our progress.
Finally, we are excited to engage with our families that are transitioning to new school buildings next school year. The district has designed innovative approaches for all families to learn about next year and the fantastic opportunities for your children. Families will be able to learn course offerings, the scheduling process, clubs and activities and more. More information is available under district news.
