Dear Parents, Students, and Community Members:

Dr. Ken FolksBuses are rolling, teachers are back in the classroom and our students are learning! Each school year brings anticipation, excitement, and for some, anxiety of what the year may hold. You play an important role in the educational process of our District’s nearly 9,000 students and I want to keep you informed of what’s going on in East Allen County Schools.  This past school year brought many accomplishments:

  • Our ISTEP results were released by the Indiana Department of Education and our overall scores were improved dramatically!  We made an overall increase of 5.5% in Math and English, compared to the overall State increase average of 1%. This was a huge accomplishment!  Our teachers and staff work extremely hard to help our students succeed. 
  • All staff members were trained in the A.L.I.C.E. (Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, Evacuate) safety procedures. Our students will receive training during this school year. A safe environment is one key to the success of our students.
  • We have implemented data ‘War Rooms’ in all secondary schools and ‘War Rooms’ will be added at all elementary buildings this school year. These data centers are called ‘War Rooms’ because this is where teachers and administrators attack issues such as graduation rates, assessment test scores, attendance rates, and much more, student by student!
  • We are proud of the new Heritage and Woodlan K–12 campuses.  If you haven’t visited these sites, please contact these schools to set up a tour of the building!
  • This year, we begin a new joint venture with the Associated Builders and Contractors with the goal of providing interested students an early start towards apprenticeships into skilled trades.   

The continued building of our partnerships with our District’s families and community stakeholders is vital to our success.  We are here to serve our students and look forward to “inspiring in all students a passion for learning” during the 2014-2015 school year.  I look forward to another great school year! Dream It. Do It.

Sincerely,

Dr. Kenneth H. Folks
Superintendent
