Dear Malone CSD community,


I hope that you had a chance to relax, recharge, and are now excited for the 2022-2023 school year. Malone CSD is excited to welcome students back to our campuses on Tuesday, September 6.


We are coming off a successful summer filled with academic programming for our students. Thank you to the staff and students who took part in these great opportunities. We are already making plans for the summer of 2023.


At our recent board of education meeting we formally adopted our five-year strategic plan, our district comprehensive improvement plan, and several school comprehensive education plans. These plans are linked in several places on our district website. Our strategic plan provides a new Mission Statement, Vision Statement, and Core Values. We appreciate all the feedback we received from students, parents, and staff throughout the last year that helped us create this plan.


The strategic plan is broken into five (5) Priority Areas.

  • Engaging and Challenging Learning for All:

    • We will create and support a rigorous educational experience, PK-12, that challenges every child individually by providing balanced instruction in both basic and advanced academic skills and knowledge, as well as those skills necessary for future employment.

  • Professional Excellence:

    • We will create regular and ongoing opportunities for collaboration between grade- and department-level faculty in order to facilitate opportunities for professional development and growth.

  • Community Connections:

    • We will develop a series of systems to communicate and build relationships with parents/guardians and the school community.

  • Learning-Focused Organization:

    • We will develop student-focused systems that support the district in meeting and exceeding learning objectives.

  • Student-Centered Programming:

    • We will ensure that students are provided and have access to mental health support, as well as a safe place to be comfortable expressing themselves.

We will continue working on improving our communication with parents and students through the use of Parent Square and our One Call Now system. From time to time throughout the year we may be using a program called Thought Exchange to solicit feedback from you on a variety of instructional and operational matters. Your feedback will be important to us as we keep our plans updated.


It continues to be my honor to serve as your superintendent. Thank you for all your continued support of the Malone Central School District.


Sincerely,

Jerry Griffin

Superintendent
