Trimester Feedback Needed
The 2016-17 school year is the first year Emporia Public Schools have implemented a trimester schedule. Classes in the first trimester met Aug 17 – Nov 10. We have two more trimesters this year: Trimester 2 meets from Nov 14 – Feb 23 and Trimester 3 meets from Feb 27 – May 24-26. We want to gather feedback on the experiences students, staff, and parents had during the initial trimester. The feedback will be used to determine changes that need to be considered for future school calendars. Please take this short survey.

Turning Point Academy
We are an innovative and non-traditional and we offer educational choices and flexibility that customizes education for every student. We have a K-4 and 5-8 face-to-face classes at William Allen White Elementary School, 902 Exchange St. Our 9-12 program is at Emporia High School, 3302 W 18th Ave.
Our philosophy is learning can occur at any time and place and quality learning happens in both an individual and social context.The personal touch means so much in a child’s educational experience and Turning Point staff understands that each child is unique. Each student’s individual learning needs factor in to the educational goals and outcomes for which both the student and staff share responsibility.
