We have updated the software so that it will display better on Internet Explorer and mobile devices. We have also taken this opportunity to reorganize our site. The "Quicklinks" are now in the menu at the top of the page. There you'll find some of our most popular pages. Departments and School Board are now found under the "District" menu. Our Schools links now take you directly to the newly designed school homepages. The "Teaching and Learning" section houses the pages related to student instruction. We hope you like our new site and come back often!
