Did You Know?

Did you know that Athletic Director, Tyler Pickens started an Akron Coaches Club. The club includes all of our school athletic coaches and they meet once a month. The idea behind the club is to have our coaches learn and grow through one another by sharing and discussing topics, articles, videos, best practices, and ideas related to athletics and coaching. Anyone who has coached knows that a great deal of time and commitment is required. Thank you coaches for going the extra mile for yourselves, our student athletes, and school.


This doesn’t have anything to do with material things (although it can). It’s about having a mind-set of gratitude… seeing your life as a gift and using your gifts to make a difference for others.

Parent Focus Group

Parents and Guardians,

Over the last four years Akron School District has been part of a group of schools which participate in a review process to improve school districts called Student-Centered Accountability Program (S-CAP). During each annual review, we look at all aspects of the school district. The strategic priorities for the district fall under three categories G-Growth, E2-Engaged Education, and C3- Culture, Climate, and Communication.

On November 7-8, 2022, we will have the Akron School District S-CAP review. We are asking for parents to volunteer to participate in focus groups. These focus groups will meet at the school during an assigned time between 12pm-1:30pm. Lunch will be provided for members of the focus group. Reviewers from other schools and organizations will ask our volunteer parents questions about our school system. The purpose of this review is to provide us with feedback so that we continue to improve our school system.

If you would like to help our school by joining this process, please volunteer to be a parent in one of these focus groups. To do so, please email Mr. Randel at s.randel@akronrams.org, Mrs. Anderson at k.anderson@akronrams.org or call the school at 970-345-2266 to visit with one of these principals about your interest in being in a focus group.

Thank you for helping us to continuously improve the Akron School District.
