Dear Mayfield City Schools Residents,
At Mayfield City Schools, we are committed to "Every Student. Every Day." The work of the 2017-18 school year is well underway, and I am excited by what our students can accomplish both inside and outside the classroom.
In order to succeed, we must build upon our tradition of excellence and plan for the future. The foundation of our schools is defined by the The Mayfield Vision and Quality Improvement Process. In addition, our vision for the future is directed by our four Quality Improvement Pillars.
•Student Learning and Academic Excellence
•Fiscal Stewardship and Operations
•Growing Leadership, Talent, and Professional Capacity
•Community Relations and Family Partnerships
Ultimately, this work guided by our Pillars will ensure our students can compete globally and succeed in today’s world. It also makes certain that we remain accountable to our community and the taxpayers. Here’s how:
Student Learning and Academic Excellence
The Mayfield City School District has provided every high school student with a Chromebook this year. Chromebooks personalize learning for each student, allows them to collaborate and exposes them to the technology they will encounter in their careers or college. We have also committed to providing real-world, authentic learning experiences through our cross-curricular, project/product based-learning opportunities. The goal is to have our students find the best path for themselves through hands-on experiences.
Fiscal Stewardship and Operations
Our school district has made renovations to the middle school, along with fixing the HVAC system, while the high school gym, band room, and choir room have seen improvements. These upgrades, and the phases to follow, will prolong the useful life of our facilities, saving the district money in the long run.
Growing Leadership, Talent, and Professional Capacity
Our teachers and staff have had numerous professional development opportunities and will have more throughout the school year. These opportunities give our staff an opportunity to collaborate, share best practices, and enhance their skills as educators. As our students grow, so do the capabilities of our wonderful staff.
Community Relations and Family/Business Partnerships
The Mayfield City School District has a strong relationship with our local communities. Through the community-led Wildcat Community Foundation, we are able to partner with residents, local businesses and supporters to improve education. The Wildcat Community Foundation serves as an advisor, provides financial support, and sponsors events to help support instructional innovation.
We have also created the Mayfield APP, which is available for download on mobile devices and tablets, to enhance communications with our families and community. It is an easy, one-stop shop for all things Mayfield City Schools.
These are just some of the ways we hope to strengthen the quality of education our students receive, while also making sure our schools and community remain connected.
To learn more, we encourage all of our residents to check out our 2017 Mayfield Quality Profile, which was mailed to all district homes in September. It is a comprehensive report that details the overall educational value of our school district in areas that matter most to our community. I am confident you will be impressed not only with our accomplishments and the value we bring to the Mayfield community, but also with our commitment to continue moving our excellent school district forward. Thank you for your continued support of our students and schools.
Keith Kelly, Superintendent
