Shout Outs!

  • There's a new Doctor at Smith! Congratulations to Dr. Cre Boyd, who defended her dissertation during the holiday break, and was awarded her degree from Walden University!

  • A HUGE well deserved kudos to the Special Education team for doing such a fantastic job at keeping Smith off the district error reports, especially when we were going through a challenging semester of changes to ARD paperwork and services. With the exception of a few IEP+ hiccups, (which is not our fault) Smith has not been on one error report this year.
