Message from the Superintendent

I’m excited to welcome all of our staff and students back to school for the 2019-2020 school year! September represents new beginnings, fresh starts, new relationships and new opportunities to learn and grow as students and professionals in a learning community. In the spring we announced the Board’s approval to renovate the Starlight School. This project took off at the beginning of summer in order to be ready by the first day of school in August. Included in the school renovation were abatement of asbestos throughout the buildings, universal flooring system, new paint throughout the building, new heating and air conditioning units, new tempered glass windows and bathroom upgrades. A continuous ramp has also been added to the outside, allowing easier access from classrooms to the playground. We now have more secure entries, safer traffic and parking patterns, and improved security measures for active shooter and other disasterrelated plans. As we move into September, renovation work will begin in the workshop building, which is being turned into our Community Services office to house our Zane Street employees. This is due for completion in October. The news of renovation was well received by the public and we greatly appreciate the support. This program means so much to our community and to the many generations who helped build it. It is our hope that by updating the buildings, we will be here for many more generations. We are very determined to continue our important work around taking care of the individuals we and our community partners provide services to and ensuring those we serve succeed in life. We believe that when we put the individuals at the center of all our decisions, help them grow socially, emotionally, and academically, they will be ready to take on the world and pursue the many opportunities ahead of them.    

Please feel free to contact me via phone or email if you have any questions.


Kellie Brown, Superintendent
