Superintendent's Corner

September Message from the Superintendent

To the SEBRSD Community,

Welcome to the 2017-18 school year!  This year will be my 26th year in education and I know I have more passion and energy to do this work than ever before.  

Growth in enrollment will be a continuing theme for our school district.  It is hopeful that enrollment will continue to be on the rise by stabilizing our grade configuration of our schools to PreK-6 at East Brookfield Elementary School, K-4 at Wire Village School, 5 through 8 at Knox Trail  Middle School, and grades 9-12 at David Prouty High School.  This is the third year with this configuration and allows students to grow and develop over several years in one school that promotes confidence and a sense of pride within the student population.

The new school year will bring many new and exciting opportunities.  Our work plan will include: 

  1. Implementing a global studies curriculum for all sophomores in the newly renovated innovation room.
  2. Continuing to improve our facilities and grounds to meet the needs of our students in this more advanced, culturally diverse society. 
  3. Successfully entering year 2 of the adoption of our K-8 math and science curricula.  Begin implementation of an elementary literacy program as well as research new project based learning STEM curriculum and materials. 
  4. Providing increased health and education support services for students and families through community partnerships. 

I encourage everyone to be an active participant with our many communication options.  Please make regular use of our district and school websites, our district and school social media, our monthly school newsletters, and school board and school community events.  Our students will accomplish great things with a strong home-school connection.

~ Jodi Bourassa, Interim Superintendent
