Students, staff returning to classes this week PDF Print E-mail

There is a change of pace in most homes in the area as students and staff at Chase County Schools returned to classes today (Thursday). There is also a big change in personnel who are greeting students at the door this year with 11 new teachers and certificated personnel, along with three new administrators. The teaching and support staff gathered Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday this week reviewing policies, going over equipment operation, reviewing schedules and the purchasing process, discussing insurance options as well as professional development. Teachers who also serve as sponsors and coaches also met. At right, Supt. Joey Lefdal concludes his welcome remarks and review of policy Monday morning with the entire K-12 staff.
