                                                      MISSION STATEMENT
         District schools are organized for the purpose of meeting the needs, interests, and abilities of the students. The
         curriculum and policies are made with the welfare of the student always the determining factor.

         The District is committed to the principle that the educational opportunity is an American birthright to be bestowed
         upon the individual without regard to economic status, race, creed, or color. Education is a process of growth, liberation
         of capacity.

         The District shall instill an appreciation of democracy, the American heritage, and the American way of life. The
         participation of all school children in a democratic school society will train them to assume the privileges and duties of
         citizenship, which is considered vital to the intelligent preservation of the democratic order.

This District has written policies and procedures to identify the following:
    Students who are at risk of dropping out of school under state criteria
    Students who are at risk of dropping out of school under local criteria
    How students are entered into the SCE program
    How students are exited from the SCE program

      student ratio

Total SCE funds allotted to this District _______840,265___

Total FTEs funded through SCE at this District _______17_______________

The process we use to identify students at risk is:
Students’ placement as “At Risk” to be served with SCE funds is based on the state’s eligibility criteria.

The process we use to exit students from the SCE program who no longer qualify is:
Students who no longer meet any of the 13 indicators on the state’s eligibility criteria and are not at risk of dropping
out of school are exited from the program at the end of the school year.
