Dear East Allen County School Community,

Welcome back for the 2014-15 school year! I hope everyone enjoyed a relaxing and enjoyable summer break! Here at East Allen County Schools, we have been preparing all summer for the return of our students to the classroom on Tuesday, August 12th. We are also excited to welcome all of our families who are new to East Allen County Schools and we invite you to become active members of our school community.

Canal Days

Our schools have much to offer our students. We have a rich and rigorous curriculum to challenge our students to achieve their maximum potential. Our staff is trained to engage all learners academically and to challenge them to develop the skills to think critically and creatively. Teachers, administrators, and support staff develop genuine, caring relationships with students and motivate them to always give their best effort. Students in all grades engage in inquiry and learn to use technology safely and effectively to enhance their learning. We work hard to prepare our students to be confident and capable contributors to society on both a local and global scale. We purposefully integrate effective communication skills, responsible citizenship, and collaboration into all learning experiences. From the earliest

East Allen County Schools has a data driven approach to academic performance. We closely track individual student data and work closely with students and parents to track academic progress. Our administrators and teachers own the data in their schools and we believe that student and parent ownership of that same data is the key to improvement. Our goal is to work closely with parents as members of the same team for the benefit of your child.

Although the focus of a school is predominantly on academics, at East Allen County Schools we also understand the importance of safety. We know that all parents want their children to learn, but they also want them to be safe. Safety is a high priority in East Allen. We are constantly reviewing and revising our safety plans to keep everyone safe. Over the summer, we have trained our staff on the A.L.I.C.E. protocol. A.L.I.C.E. empowers staff and students to make decisions during a school crisis. The safest course of action may not always be lockdown; escape may be a better option given the circumstances. We are proud to be taking a proactive approach to safety and we invite any questions or concerns you may have regarding safety in our schools.

In closing, I want you to know that we deeply appreciate your support as we partner together to provide the best educational experience possible for the students we serve. Our commitment as a district is to honor your investment in education by achieving our motto of “Dream It. Do It.”

Have a fantastic school year!

Dr. Kenneth H. Folks, Superintendent, East Allen County Schools
