Emporia Public SchoolsWe Build Futures
All Budget Dollars Support Classroom
Theresa Davidson, Superintendent
The heart of our work in education is all about students and teachers in the classroom. Who can argue the challenge from state policymakers and politicians to “put more money into the classroom”? Nothing is more important than the lessons that prepare a student for the world outside that classroom. And yet, I struggle to identify anything or anyone in our schools that doesn’t end up “in the classroom.”
