Superintendent’s Board Report for September 2023
James D. Fossett
Back to school nights in Goldfield and Dyer occurred the last week of August and went very well. Our enrollments have been going up weekly now for the last 4 weeks.
Labor Day Holiday September 4th - No School Monday
School Board Meeting September 12th - Dyer Tuesday 4:00 PM
PD Day September 15th - Friday PD Goldfield
For the first time, students and teachers of EsCSD accomplished all baseline (beginning of the year) testing in the first two weeks of school! As teachers examine results, student grouping, interventions, and accelerated instruction will all be setup.
With minor changes to the safety drills and training for this year, we are off to a great start with all county resources (sheriff, fire, emergency management) collaborating to make this a safe and productive school year.
District Facilities and Bus Update:
During the historic Hurricane Hilary, the schools of EsCSD suffered no damage. Special thanks to members of the community, maintenance and other staff who helped prepare for the deluge with sandbags, watchfulness, and great teamwork.
In August we received word that our PreK grant came through. It is going to offer us substantial support for improved PreK curriculum, more staffing for PreK. The numbers in our PreK classroom have been increasing across the board this year. Dyer is up to 9, Goldfield and Silver Peak are up to 5.
