Superintendent’s Message: 

Hard Work by School Staff Pay Off

Theresa Davidson, Superintendent

Theresa Davidson, Superintendent

Last month, I shared with great pride the news of our students’ achievement results on the new state assessments.  Our scores mirrored the average of all districts in our state. Why does “average” make me so proud?

We start from a different place, but Emporia graduates enter college and career experiences with skills that match or exceed their peers across the state. Our students’ scores are right in line with those of other districts in the state. THAT makes me proud!
