We have had some financial issues this past school year because of the decrease in enrollment, the decrease in school funding over the past 3 years, and the increase in health insurance costs. These financial issues have been addressed in a manner that ensures we do not directly impact our students' learning and educational opportunities. We carefully planned, collaborated, and implemented a "plan of action" to help this District be more financially stable in the near future and to continue meeting the educational needs of all students.
We believe every student is important, and we want all students to work hard, be dedicated to their education, and accept responsibility for their decisions/actions. We continue to focus on curriculum, analyzing student data, educational programs, and research-based interventions. All of these components play a major role in student success. We are being creative and innovative when making changes in the way we instruct, prepare, and disseminate educational material to our students.
As we continue on our educational path, we want to provide each student with the resources, materials, and opportunities to be successful. We have continually used data to drive our educational decisions; therefore, we will put our focus on math throughout the District this school year. We have shown growth in this subject area and an increase in achievement. However, we take seriously every subject area and will continue to monitor our State Report Card results.
Our staff is committed and dedicated to the education and future of all students and will provide a well-rounded education that will allow each student to be college and career ready. We will continue to work on achieving the highest grade possible in all categories on the Ohio School Report Card. We will take ownership for all learning, and be held accountable for the educational package we continue to provide to all students in the Gallipolis City School District.
All staff members within the Gallipolis City School District should be commended for their dedication and commitment to excellence.9/20/2016
