Dear Parents and Students,
We welcome you to the Mark West Union School District and are grateful that you have trusted our community with your child’s education and social emotional well-being. I am so proud of the staff and administration at each one of our four school sites, as they work to ensure the best possible learning environment. As a former parent and now Board member, I have seen the commitment and effort made by each staff member, to provide a safe and productive learning environment for our children.
The continuation of our global pandemic has presented unique challenges to our district, students, families and staff. Together, as we have faced these challenges head on, we believe that the Mark West Union School District has done a tremendous job addressing these challenges as we navigated Distance Learning, Hybrid Learning and the successful return to in person learning. The current Board of Trustees has seen first hand the creativity and generosity set forth by our staff, families and community to ensure that we make every effort to address the needs of each student.
Our desire to put students first was evident during the Summer Academy Program provided this past summer to over 250 students. Recognizing that many students needed additional support after the end of Distance Learning, we provided a program that nurtured their academic and personal success and prepared them for the 2021-2022 school year. As a result of this program, students returned to campus in August, eager and ready to learn.
Your current Board of Trustees is grateful for the community support that our schools receive from our many partners and parents. Art docents to music programs, newer technology to fieldtrips, all provide an enhanced educational experience for our students.
We invite you to be a part of this community. Our Board Meetings are held the second Tuesday of each month. We invite your feedback and input as we continue our efforts to address the needs of our students, families and staff.
