As we approach the halfway point of the final year of our three-year strategic planning cycle, the organization sits at a point of reflection and anticipation.

"I want to take a moment to share with you so many of the positive student stories, to which all of you should claim ownership! What follows is, of course, a reflection on student achievement. However, it is also impossible to separate the contributions and efforts of all staff that led to the amazing results. While the evidence that follows is not specific to any one student, the fingerprints of all staff, in the lives of all students, at all levels of the system, are found on every one of these results". Chairperson Byklum
