Welcome back to all Wakulla students for the 2012-2013 school year.The teachers, administrators and staff are all looking forward to seeing our returning students and to welcoming the new ones to our system in pre-kindergarten, kindergarten, and other grades where students have just moved into our school district.
I look forward to another successful year with the best students, parents, and educators in the state. The teamwork we have contributes to making our school system one of the best in Florida and in the nation. Wakulla County School District was the only school district in the Big Bend that earned an “A” rating for 2011-2012 in the combined areas of Reading, Math, Writing and Science. We are proud to keep our “A” designation for the seventh year in a row.
Wakulla was also one of nineteen districts named an “Academically High Performing District” for 2011-2012. This means that in addition to earning an “A” rating, we met the Class Size requirement and had a good financial audit outcome. I am confident that we will continue this tradition of excellence in 2012-2013.
In addition, the Wakulla County School System very successfully passed its district-wide accreditation for all public schools from pre-kindergarten through grade 12 in 2011-2012. Accreditation is vital to a school district and its community so that a high level of education is maintained, plus only a diploma from an accredited high school is accepted by accredited colleges and universities.
The involvement from our parents and community makes Wakulla a special place to teach our children. With such a value placed on education and a motto of “Committed to Success”, we hope that 2012-2013 is your best year yet.
Superintendent, Wakulla County Schools
