Superintendent Dr. Alicia Thompson Hosting USD 259 Community Feedback Sessions

District staff will work with Dr. Thompson to analyze all feedback collected which will help shape Year 3 of the district’s strategic plan.

USD 259 Invites Pastors to 95/0/3 Dinner Meeting

USD 259 is inviting Wichita area pastors to a kick-off dinner to learn about the district’s new 95/0/3 initiative. The initiate encourages students to have 95% attendance or greater, zero office referrals and a 3.0 or better GPA. Pastors, youth directors, youth ministers and education chairs at churches are also invited to attend. As collaborative partners, engaged in how students in their church are doing, USD 259 believe church staff and leaders can play an important role in increasing the number of “Future Ready” youth in their church.

The dinner is Thurs., Nov. 14, 6 – 7:30 p.m. at the Alvin E. Morris Administrative Center, 903 S. Edgemoor, Room 809. Park in the south lot between the Administrative Center and Curtis Middle School.
