Classes Kick Off 2013-2014 School Year

KSAL StaffAugust 14, 2013

Area students are back at school today, and USD 305 Superintendent Bill Hall, stopped into KSAL with a look around the district.

Hall, now beginning his third year at the helm of Salina schools, tells KSAL News that he spoke to his staff last week about building relationships with students.

“I shared with them the absolute importance of developing relationships with students this very first day,” he said. “As I shared with them you cannot engage their minds until you capture their hearts.”

Classes for K-5 and for Grades 6 and 9 are in session across USD 305 today. Thursday, August 15th, all grade levels are back in the classroom.

Hall mentioned that with the “No Child Left Behind” program in the past, focus is now centered on implementing “Common Core Standards” that 45 states have signed on to.

“It’s much more project based, much more real world based – it’s going to be much better for our students to prepare them for life beyond high school.”

The Superintendent also invited the public to a community meeting Thursday, August 22nd at Salina South High School beginning at 6pm. School offiicials are looking for input on facility needs moving forward. Hall tells KSAL News that tours will begin at 5pm.
