Fulton Focus

For the parents and patrons of the Fulton School District

September 9, 2016

A note from the Superintendent

Parents and Patrons:

The new school year is off to a great start. Students and staff are actively engaged in a variety of educational activities. District wide, through resources from the Missouri School Boards’ Association and the University of Missouri, we are continuing to develop additional internal student support resources for teachers to implement and provide strategies for students to problem solve and enhance personal coping skills. The ultimate goal in using the mental health resources is to improve students and teachers classroom performance.

Later this month, your Board of Education will begin work on the 2017-2022 Comprehensive School Improvement Plan. Study groups will complete ideas for initial Board of Education consideration in December and January of this school year. Study groups for plan development include: facilities and infrastructure; leaders and teachers; curriculum/technology; and parent engagement. Several meetings are planned this fall. If you are interested in participating, please contact either Karen Snethen at ksnethen@fulton58.org or me at jcowherd@fulton58.org.

Thank you for sending great kids for us to work with.

Jacque A. Cowherd, Ed.D.
