GREAT THINGS HAPPENING within the BIG GREEN
Thank you for visiting the VCSC’s website! As superintendent of the VCSC, I am so proud of the many GREAT things happening each and every day. I am also proud of our accomplishments which provide to us a solid foundation as we continue to move the VCSC to new and innovative directions.
One of our more crowning moments is the tremendous success with which we are having academically with our schools. As a testament to this, all four of our elementary schools demonstrated and showed the greatest growth from a year ago as they have been recognized by the Indiana Department of Education as that of “A” and “B” schools. This is a true testament to the work exhibited by our teachers and administrators who played an instrumental role in this. We also must thank our students and parents who played the important role in the follow through as they took to heart what our teachers and administrators asked of our students and parents to complete.
We are just as proud of our middle school and high school as they too demonstrated great growth and have many different exciting programs taking place that promotes the academic excellence to the highest.
From a variety standpoint, no one offers more in Knox County, and this also includes in large part Southwestern Indiana, than that of the VCSC and our six different schools. Not only does this include academic programming and course work, but it also includes that of extra-curricular offerings. The VCSC offers a well-rounded education that includes what we all know as the traditional academic subjects, but also that of the Fine Arts. This is a clear K-12 initiative and commitment.
The VCSC also boasts that we have some of the greatest staff and this also includes award winning teachers. We are proud of the fact that we have on staff several Golden Apple award winners, in addition to the 2013 Indiana Small and Rural School Teacher of the Year.
In terms of technology, again, you will find that the VCSC is ahead of many as we offer the most balanced technology curriculum that includes a 1:1 at our high school and K-8 the most diverse technology instruments anywhere. This ranges from SmartBoard technology in nearly all of our classrooms, to the actual instruments with which teachers and students have the opportunity to learn from. This includes that of the Kindle Fires, Netbooks, regular laptops, iPads, iPad mini’s and so forth. Our belief is that the best student is the one that is exposed to as many different forms of technology as humanly possible.
An additional item which separates the VCSC from others is our partnership with Sodexo. We have an award winning food program that offers the most variety with which any school system could possibly offer. With this stated, our food does not leave our students continuing to desire, and further it is healthy. This includes unlimited fruits and vegetables. We are also proud of the fact that Sodexo maintains our buildings and grounds for us and you will not find cleaner facilities.
As you can tell, I am proud of what we have to offer in the VCSC. To me, there is no greater place than that of the VCSC and as the superintendent, I am proud of the fact that we have so many good and great things happening each day. We truly take to truth our motto of “EDUCATIONAL EXCELLENCE EVERYDAY.”
Go Big Green!!!
