Never in the history of our nation has public education been required to educate all students to high levels of achievement. However, globalization, the new economy, and an explosion of technology, will require that all students obtain a world-class education that will enable them to become life-long learners, productive members of the workforce, and active citizens in our democratic society. In 1950, the high school drop-out rate in this country was at 50%. In the 21st century, it is clear that all students will need additional education and training beyond high school.
All students require a high quality education. Our students will need to master high levels of literacy skills, reading, writing, speaking, and listening. In addition to these literacy skills, students must possess critical math knowledge and skills, plus a firm understanding of science and technology. Students must understand the unique history of our country to fully participate in our democracy.
In the Oak Hills Local School District and at Delshire Elementary in particular, we have committed ourselves to the mission, “Learning For ALL.” This is a powerful belief that all children can learn at high levels if given enough time and resources. Currently, our staff continues to look at groups of children and the individual child to determine the right mix of time and resources that will enable all children to master grade level work and beyond. We are forming partnerships with parents and community members to help all students achieve academic excellence.
We know that we have not reached our goal and that will not slow us down. Our staff is committed to this “Learning For ALL” mission and we will not rest until we have reached that goal for all of our children. Their future, as well as ours, depends on it.
