Benton-Carroll-Salem Schools: State of the School District 2014

To the citizens, staff, and Board of Education of the Benton-Carroll-Salem School District, I wish to report to you on the state of our school district as we begin a new calendar year.

I will open with the notion that we can draw lessons from the past, but we cannot live in it.  As we take a moment to reflect on the state of our school district, it is important to note that our school district is like our nation—it is built to serve its people.  As we look forward to the year ahead, we will continue to draw on lessons from the past, but we will be urgently focused on continuing to build the Benton-Carroll-Salem School District institution.
