Heyworth Schools met with their community over the summer to find out some things that were important to them and now they are acting on what they heard.
Superintendent Lisa Taylor says they are working on updating district goals. She explains they wanted to know how the community felt about their progress, if the district was meeting the needs of the community and where else they could address.
According to Taylor, they are implementing a communication plan to tell the community more about their facilities and classroom initiatives. She indicates the community told them they want to make sure the community is getting the quality education they deserve.
Taylor says about three years ago when she first started, she indicates their district goals were reviewed but she did not feel comfortable making changes before becoming familiar with the district. Now she is ready to take a deep dive and wanted to emphasize involving their staff and community.
