Fort Campbell Education
The Mission of the Fort Campbell Schools, as a world-class organization serving all eligible children equally, is to produce individuals who have developed and refined the skills of acquiring knowledge, processing information, identifying and solving problems, experimenting, collaborating and communicating; we will accomplish this through a facilitative and interactive learning environment that nurtures the physical, social, emotional, aesthetic, and intellectual domains
Dear Parents and Students,
Welcome to Fort Campbell Schools! We are delighted you will be part of our school community and look forward to working in partnership with you in the education of your children.
Our schools offer a rigorous, system-wide curriculum built on national standards. Our support programs are specifically designed to meet the needs of students whether they require additional instruction and skills acquisition or enriched and expanded educational opportunities. Our educators are fully certified, engaged in continuous targeted professional development, and are attuned to the unique needs of the military child. Our relationship with you and the military community is built on mutual respect and a solid commitment to positive collaboration for the best interests of our students. Our schools strive for continuous improvement in instructional programs and practices and truly believe in the adage "If better is possible, good isn't enough."
We extend to you a warm welcome to visit our schools often. Please get to know the teachers and administrators, attend school events, and become active in organizations that support the schools. Parents, your interest and involvement in your children's educational life is crucially important to their success. Research clearly shows that parent involvement in their children's education directly and positively affects student achievement.
We strive to forge strong home-school communication links. Our schools and community office websites have information ranging from curriculum standards to inclement weather policy. School newsletters contain important information about upcoming events and current topics. While formal opportunities for parent - teacher conferences are scheduled throughout the year, you may easily contact school personnel through the school office or via email when you have questions or concerns. Each of our administrators has an Open Door policy, as do I. We invite you to stay in touch with the educators who provide services to your children
This school year promises exciting learning experiences and continuing opportunities for parents, students and educators to work together toward each student's educational goals
