School Is Important
It is to be noted with concern that statistical studies reveal that 85% of juveniles appearing before the courts suffers a learning disability. Along with this sobering fact, 65% of all prison inmates presently incarcerated,are reading below third grade level. Children who drop out of school are most likely to be on the rolls needing some type of public assistance. These populations are “at risk” and will require prompt attention in the form of improved programs and/or services. It is our responsibility to furnish good programs for “all groups.”
We,as a Board of Education,believe that our community has the right to expect our schools to provide all students a well-balanced curriculum and teach each child essential behavioral, social, academic and vocational skills. We believe our schools should be positive, friendly, supportive and environmentally safe; which is generally conducive to teaching and learning. Within this environment, students of all abilities should be afforded the opportunity and the challenge to develop their minds and bodies to their highest potential.
The Board of Trustees of the Spurger School District joins with our parents, teachers and administrators in pledging our professional best in assisting all students to achieve the stated goals.
