On behalf of the Board of Education of the South Euclid Lyndhurst Schools, I write to formally welcome the entire community back to another school year of academic success and overall district educational growth. The 2014-2015 School Year is now officially in session, and we wish the best of successes to the students and staff of the district. This year, the SEL Schools plans to build on the successes and growth from the last two years, under the strong leadership of Superintendent Linda N. Reid, who is now starting her third year in this role. Some of those recent, notable accomplishments include:
•The creation of Destination 2018, the district’s strategic plan
•The affirmation of the community by passing the district’s operating levy two years ago
•The positive strides made on the district’s report card in the last year
•The aligning of resources to better improve academics, such as the School Day Schedule Redesign
•The successful rebranding of the district to unify the entire student body
•The streamlining of Central Office and consolidation of positions to reduce overhead and save district dollars
The Board of Education is pleased with these accomplishments, among many others in the last two years, and we look forward to taking more strides in the future. Our vision is clear, and that is to become The Destination School Community. With our district leadership, teachers and staff, students, parents and community at large, the Board is confident that it can fulfill that vision together.
All the best during the 2014-2015 School Year!
SEL Board of Education
