August 6, 2014


Dear Slicer Supporter,

On behalf of the La Porte Community School Corporation Board of School Trustees, it is my pleasure to address you, as we plan to kick off the 2014/2015 school year.

Over the summer, a number of new staff members were hired and teachers are anxious to meet their students on the 19th of August – our first day of classes.

As a community, we should be proud of our students and staff for their accomplishments last year.  Five of eleven schools qualified as “A” schools, with the remainder scoring as “B” schools.  As pleased as we are with these results, we want to demonstrate continuous growth through student achievement and expansion of current student programs.  This year we are excited about (1) increasing vocational opportunities in agriculture and business; (2) writing process instruction for students via SMEKENS training; (3) expansion of virtual learning programs to include elementary and middle school options.

We want to tell parents and stakeholders to be advised that the new college and career ready standards will be mapped by our staff and students will be tested in math and English, using the newly revised ISTEP format.

Lastly, this will be the last year for the End of Course Assessments in algebra and English 10.  Next year, we expect a new test to be given in English and math for 10th graders.  Stay tuned for more details.

We look forward to the start of the new year and hope to see you out supporting our students during the 2014-2015 school year.

Go Slicers!
