The Business and Planning Office oversees the business areas of the district. The primary goal is to organize, coordinate and maintain the business processes required for the efficient operation of the school district. Below are a few highlights from the Business and Planning Office.
Race to the Top

Our leadership team made up of administrators and teachers have developed a plan to re-write the academic curriculum maps to mirror the new state standards, developed a highly effective professional development plan and implemented a new evaluation system for staff.
