LSR7’s four-year Comprehensive School Improvement Plan (CSIP) concludes at the end of the 2020-2021 school year. Last month, we invited interested stakeholders — teachers, students, parents, and community members — to help us develop our next strategic plan. The district assembled a team whose members represent LSR7’s many school communities. This team, composed of various stakeholder groups, will view the district with a global Pre-K-12 lens as we build the district’s next strategic plan. The district is grateful for all applicants who expressed their interest in shaping the future of LSR7.

COVID-19 has prompted our district to embrace flexibility, innovation and resourcefulness as we continue our mission of serving students in the midst of a global pandemic.
Since August, district leaders along with metro superintendents and local public health officials, have evaluated public health data on a weekly basis to determine when moving to a hybrid model of instruction for grades 4-12 poses less risk for our school community. This week, local public health leaders and the Mid-America Regional Council updated the gating criteria districts are recommended to use in determining when to deliver virtual, hybrid or full-time in-person instruction.
At this time, the district has determined that this updated guidance supports a transition to a hybrid learning model for grades 4-12.
