Dear Capac Community:

The 2018-2019 school year is under way and what a fantastic 2017-2018 we had.  Throughout this newsletter you will have the opportunity to read about our many accomplishments over the past year. Personally, I feel privileged and honored to serve the District and Community of Capac.  My family and I finally moved into the area late in June and are busy settling in and enjoying the area.    

In the Spring, the Board had the opportunity to update our Strategic Plan. Here are the updated goals:

Goal 1: Academics/Programs
Capac Community Schools will improve rigor and standing by engaging all learners.
Objectives:
Develop relevant professional development plan using existing Title II funds
Increase number of students meeting academic benchmarks based on statewide and district tests
Implement, monitor and enhance professional learning communities across the district focusing on the English Learners staff and buildings

Goal 2: Learning Environment/Culture
Capac Community Schools will create new opportunities for both athletics and academics in order to become a destination district.
Objectives:
Create additional opportunities for elementary extracurriculars
Develop programs and opportunities to enhance and support a culture of academic and co-curricular excellence

Goal 3: Personnel/Leadership
Capac Community Schools will provide an environment for personnel and leadership success.
Objectives:
Continue work on alignment of K-12 curriculum
Create a professional environment and culture that encourages and supports all staff in their professional development

Goal 4: Communication/Community Engagement
Capac Community Schools will use multiple communication mediums to promote positive highlights of Capac Community Schools.
Objectives:
Implement and improve focused marketing and social media practices and policies
Work to increase parent and community participation in district activities to improve perception of Capac schools
Continue to survey parents of students leaving or not currently attending Capac to increase enrollment and retain students

Goal 5: Operations

Capac Community Schools will maintain the district’s full operational needs within a balanced budget and achieve a visually appealing environment.
Objectives:
Formalize operations and transportation department
Continue to budget and spend appropriately in order to maintain district fiscal stability
Maintain and enhance curb appeal in the district

Construction began immediately after school ended in June. Among the many changes, we have replaced boilers, repaved parking lots and bus loops and moved the Central Office to the high school. We have posted many pictures of the progress on Facebook; we hope you have had the opportunity to check them out. Please follow us on Facebook for these and many more happenings at Capac Community Schools. You can also follow us on Twitter at CapacChief1. Additionally, we have added some new security measures this year. In the mornings all doors will be locked and people wishing to enter will have to be granted access. We are putting in a key “fob” system and current keys will become obsolete. This will allow us to control who has access and when they do with this system. We also are in the process of changing our website host to hopefully make it more user friendly.

Finally, we would like to thank all of you for supporting Capac Community Schools. Without your support, none of the wonderful things taking place would be possible. We look forward to serving our children, parents, district, and community this coming year. 

 

Sincerely,

Jeff Terpenning
