Statement of the District
Dr. Bernard S. Prevuznak, Superintendent
June 30, 2014
Ladies and gentlemen many great strides have been taken over the last few months in addressing issues from curriculum needs concerning student achievement, safety measures that were implemented throughout all our schools, the re-establishing of partnerships with community members and institutions of higher learning, as well providing day to day service in order to assist all the stakeholders of the Wilkes-Barre Area.
But let me elaborate on this for just a second, on these achievements this district piloted and purchased a new Reading series for elementary students in order to address student achievement and scores in standardized testing. This new program will be fully implemented for the upcoming school year. Additionally this district received KTO Grant money and designated a portion of it for contracting with the “Step by Step” Educational Group in order to address issues of Literacy in Pre K and Kindergarten classrooms. I am pleased to announce that in one year’s time record growth levels have been achieved in all our elementary schools at these grade levels. In our secondary schools we will implementing a STEM (concentration in Science, Technology, English, Math) program for junior high student and it will housed at Meyers High School but we open to Solomon and GAR students as well. Additionally this district will be implementing a secondary flex schedule that will allow students to take more and more electives and provide challenging new classes for their academic preparation. Along the line of academic progress this district has established a productive cyber school that services some 70 district students to date that are part of our system’s tuition tax base and thus not being filtered elsewhere. Our special education department has also contributed to this cause by returning to our district at a cost savings various educational student placements that were housed in other districts.
