Message from the Superintendent- September 2017
What a great start to another new year in the NLSD! Our staff did a fantastic job preparing for our student’s return, and are anticipating another exciting year of growth and improvement. We have witnessed many permanent improvements over the summer and trust these changes will only further enhance the learning environment for our students.
The Noble Local Board of Education is committed to supporting our students in every way possible. Investing permanent improvement dollars is just one way we can assure our students today, and 25 years from today, will always have the best opportunities to be successful, and competitive in an ever changing, global environment.
Some of the major improvements in our district include, but are not limited to the following:
* For the second year in a row we have once again, added a pre-school classroom. We have now expanded to three classrooms and 4 classes!
*1:1 technology in grades 9-12- each student has access to a Chromebook for use at home and school.
*Updated our district phone system allowing us 23 incoming lines compared to the 8 we had originally.
*New “Journey’s” literacy program for grades K-5.
*New HVAC (including air conditioning) throughout elementary and middle school.
*Electrical and plumbing upgrades at SES/SMS.
*SHS parking lot completely paved. Sidewalks restored and expanded.
*New LED stadium lights.
*Newly constructed stadium track.
*Purchased nearly 40 acres across from SHS. The site is cleared and awaiting plans for future development. Great opportunities for future growth!
Each of our building administrators work continually with their staff to develop plans for future growth and improvement. Within these plans, they identify “action steps” to accomplish their goals, and work to align the resources necessary to support and complete the task. Our staff is dedicated to continually reflecting, and evaluating our progress toward meeting these goals!
I remain very excited about the future of the NLSD and look forward to working with our staff and community to accomplish the many goals we have established. There is nothing we cannot achieve!
