Dear parents and students:
Welcome to the School District of Ashland where we are working to create a rewarding educational experience for every student. To accomplish this vision we are providing the most innovative instruction to make learning relevant and encourage a strong desire to learn. Every student has gifts and we help young people recognize their gifts and learn to nurture them.
Our teachers, administrators, and support staff are committed to providing all students with a high quality education and learning environment through the use of researched and proven instructional practices; on-going assessment and feedback to students and parents about learning; and collaborative and responsive partnerships with students and parents.
- To support the most innovative instruction, the district is integrating instructional technology into every classroom.
- Students also have expanded opportunities for on-line coursework. These courses can supplement our existing curriculum or are even offered as a full-time home-schooling option with the benefits of participation in co-curricular activities.
- To aide in the understanding of our students’ progress, the district uses Measure of Academic Progress (MAP) testing. These assessments help staff, students and parents track academic growth by testing students’ knowledge and skills three times per year and sharing this data with families.
- To meet the learning needs of all children, the School District of Ashland offers choices of schools. We offer a traditional school choice and a project-based school choice in grades 3-12.
The School District of Ashland is constantly looking for new ways to serve our students and the community. Feel free to contact us with questions or comments.
