CENTRAL SCHOOL DISTRICT
1 Park St. Marathon, NY 13803
Message from the Superintendent - August 2019
Dear Marathon Students and Community Members,
We are excited to begin a new school year and hope your children are looking forward to being back. Last year the District developed a new strategic plan with the help of our students, staff and community members. We will continue with our mission of EMBRACE, EDUCATE and EMPOWER, however our strategic intents have changed. Below you will find our focus for the upcoming year:
EMBRACE - Promote a welcoming climate to increase the student’s personal academic achievement.
EDUCATE - Teach skills relating to real life and monitor data, act and re-aim when necessary.
EMPOWER - Support student’s individual goals.
Action steps for accomplishing our goals include: Surveying students, faculty, staff and community members to determine how we can make Marathon a welcoming environment and creating welcoming events based on the survey; providing better access to our high school course catalog; providing students with information on courses beyond graduation requirements; increasing the number of students taking electives beyond graduation requirements; focusing on graduation rates, attendance, passing rates, state test scores, literacy levels and math mastery; and working with students on individual goal setting.
We have a few new staff members this year. At the Junior/Senior High, we will welcome Ms. Froio to art, Mr. Bergman in math, and Mr. Faughnan as one of our science teachers. The Marathon PTSA will be sponsoring an ice cream social to meet our new staff on Wednesday, August 27th from 5:30-6:30 PM. Ice cream will be served on the Village Green in front of the Junior/Senior High School. We hope you can attend. Enjoy your last few days of summer before we begin a new school year.
