Dr. Taylor's Blog - On a Positive Note...

To the Community of Meridian,

We have now completed our first nine weeks grading period, and I must say that we are definitely moving in the right direction!

I am happy to report that:

• Our average daily attendance rate for the district is over 95 percent.

•Our teachers and students did a respectable job on the first common assessment which evaluates the performance of our schools based on the state-mandated exams.

•We have been working with several community groups that are assisting us in the areas of tutoring, mentoring, parent involvement, and teacher support.

•We added two School Resources Officers to our security team.

These are a few of the things that we have done recently to ensure that we are Making Positive Strides Daily.

Believe in Blue,

Dr. Taylor
