Superintendent’s Message – August/September 2016

Dear Moreland Community,

Welcome back!  The last few weeks have been filled with exciting times.  First year teacher excitement, new materials and training for teachers, and last minute facilities projects to make our schools look and feel beautiful for the students.  As you prepare your children for the new school year, we are excited to share some of the extensive work we have done this summer to help our students and staff have a truly successful year.

 

You may have been reading in the paper about the intense teacher shortage this summer, with some districts even providing signing bonuses.  Due to the heroic efforts of our Human Resources Department, under the direction of Colette Zea, we are projected to be fully staffed in all classrooms on the first day of school.  Moreland School District remains highly competitive and the word is out that we continue to be a great place for people to work.

 

With the rollout of Common Core, the demand on teacher training has been high.  We heard  the concern expressed by our parents and teachers about how much time teachers were away from the classroom as they learn these new strategies.  In order to alleviate this situation, the Educational Services team, led by Destiny Ortega, structured comprehensive summer training opportunities for teachers during the summer.  Many of our teachers participated in these summer training sessions. As you can see below, this effort drastically reduced the number of substitute days teachers will be out of the classroom this coming school year.

 

Eureka Math (2 days): 109 elementary teachers

CPM (Middle School Math Program (3 days): 23 middle school math

Fountas and Pinnell (Reading Assessment) (1 day): 102 elementary teachers

 

Finally, our Business Department, under the direction of Patti Ernsberger, Kevin Baker and Denis Guerrero, worked this summer on a significant amount of facilities and technology upgrades that have been completed to help maintain our facilities and infrastructure.  Our maintenance, operations, grounds and technology staff have been very busy all summer.  Below are some of the projects completed this summer.

 

Parking Lot Maintenance - All Schools

Summer Classroom Cleaning - All Schools

Kitchen Upgrades - EDS and Latimer

Grounds Maintenance - All Schools

Solar Panel Cleaning - All Schools with Panels

Ball Wall Repair and Replacements - EDS, Anderson

Safety Upgrades - All Schools

Refinishing Community Center Gym Floor

Systems Upgrades for all current technology systems

 

A sense of community is the cornerstone of what makes Moreland School District thrive.  This community feel is realized repeatedly through the extensive support of the Moreland Educational Foundation and our Home and School Clubs at each of our schools.  As you join the community, please consider joining these organization and taking on leadership roles to help our schools continue to thrive.  By doing so, your child will benefit and as a parent, you will connect more fully to the community of Moreland.  

 

We are very excited to see your children on August 23rd.  Look for our new website unveil at www.moreland.org and Like us on Facebook to keep up with the innovative programs and upcoming dates throughout the school year.
