Letter from Superintendent Gallagher
Welcome to the Brookings-Harbor School District!
Staff, Students, Parents, and Constituents:
I would like to welcome everyone back for the 2016-17 school year. We are all excited about the great work that we can achieve together. The district motto of “Every Student Can Succeed” drives our district as we focus on the best interests of our students. We need everyone’s support as we strive to provide the highest quality of education for all students.
The first official day for students is Tuesday September 6th. Refer to registration materials, and district websites for details. The district will be celebrating the new school year with a community breakfast event starting at 7:30 AM on Monday August 29th at Brookings Harbor High School Cafeteria. We will be welcoming all of our new hires to our community at this event and recognizing those that continue to support our district including the “Stuff The Bus” program proceeds facilitated by one of our community partners, KURY radio. The 21 new faces to our school district have come from all over the nation including Alaska, Nevada, Washington, Oregon, Hawaii, Florida, and Colorado.
The 2016-17 district goals are consistent with focusing on 1. Increasing the graduation rate, 2. Improving student achievement, 3. Closing the achievement gap, 4. College and Career Readiness for all students, 5. Recruitment and Retention of Employees, & 6. Improved Community Communications. We will be reporting on progress throughout the 2016-17 school year as data becomes available.
I look forward to working with all of you this year and am honored to continue as your Superintendent. I know that we will have a great school year. See you in the community.
Sean Gallagher, Superintendent
