Afton Central School Community,

First and foremost, welcome back to the 2018-2019 school year. I am very excited to begin my second year here at Afton. I truly believe we have an excellent group of students, teachers, staff, administrators and parents.

Afton Central School District is focused on moving forward with aspirations to be an even stronger school for students in the coming years. The entire leadership team has been at work on planning for improvements, which includes the 2018-2019 LINKS plan that was developed this summer by our teachers, parents, administrators and staff. This document will be the driving force of all academic decisions. 

Our mission: “Working together as a team within an environment of respect, creativity, and academic challenge, we will use all available resources to help all student learn to be responsible, productive, and eager to continue learning, while becoming prepared to meet the challenges of a diverse society.”

I am excited to tell you about some of the many endeavors we have been engaged in over the past several months. 

PBIS – Implementation Training

LINKS – Strategic Planning

BOE Retreat – Strategic Planning

Professional Learning Community - Implementation

Leadership Training – Trauma Informed Schools 

There has been quite a bit of change to our faculty and staff over the past few months.  The administrative team, together with interview committees, have considered not only candidates with the requisite experience and certifications, but for what they can bring to benefit students, both in and out of the classroom.  Our focus has been to add value to the learning community through the hiring process.  We are excited to see how students will respond to our new staff and how the culture of Afton Central School District will be enriched.
