The Augusta School Department administrators and staff are eager for the new school year to begin. The first few days of school are filled with excitement and wonderment as staff meet their new students and students acclimate to their new classes/programs. We know that for some families, school attendance can be problematic and we want to help. The following website has some really great resources around student absences: http://www.absencesaddup.org/ please contact your child's teacher, school counselor or principal if additional support is needed. We look forward to providing a great educational experience for your child(ren) this upcoming school year.

STATEMENT OF BOARD CHAIR CONCERNING JUNE 8, 2016 BOARD MEETING
Review of School Culture Survey results- In March, 2016, we developed 3 surveys which targeted students, staff and community/parent input. These surveys links were posted on the ASD website, Facebook and through school newsletters. Hard copies were provided to parents and students along with access to Survey Monkey web based system. The survey was closed on April 29th.
The Student and Community/Parent survey results were surprisingly better than expected. The staff results were as expected. These results still need to be shared with the School Board and are posted below. Building administrators will review results with their building staff and establish at least one building goal around the results.
