We are a school division committed to our students and providing an excellent educational program. Our teachers value the uniqueness of each student and strive to challenge them daily. Teaching engaging lessons rooted in the Standards of Learning augmented by a variety of resources makes every day critical for the achievement for our students.
One of a community’s greatest assets is its public schools – the children, their families, and the school division’s staff. The school buildings create the framework in which our students learn, our teachers teach and our support staff provide services to meet the diverse needs of our programs.
The School Board conducts an annual review of Policy INDCA-Release Time and has done so since the policy was adopted in 2005. As part of its review process in 2016, the School Board discussed a number of education-related considerations, and decided, in a 5-1 vote on July 8, to discontinue the Release Time Policy.
