Dear SHS Alumni,
At Sedan Junior-Senior High School we recognize how important it is to develop our students into productive citizens. We are very excited this year to host a Career Day on November 17, 2017. We are looking for Sedan High School alumni to speak to our students about your career. We want our students to know about your education or training requirements. We want them to know about your struggles and successes. You would need to have around a 15-20 minute presentation and a short question and answer time. You could bring some of your staff, props, or anything else you might need to showcase your career. The day will be from 8:15-3:15 and we will provide you with lunch and snacks. We are very excited about this opportunity to allow our students to learn from you. So many of our students are unaware of the career
opportunities available to them and this will be an amazing way to provide them with first hard knowledge of potential career paths. You could truly impact someone’s future.
If you are interested in speaking at our event or know someone who might be interested, please contact Kay Hill or Carolyn Williams.
We are looking forward to hearing from you!
Kay L. Hill
For the past few years we have worked to improve the support our students receive. We have found that doing the same thing and expecting different results often prevents us from reaching our overall goals. Many times some students need an explanation or individual instruction, others need to finish assignments, and yet others need enrichment in areas they are passionate about or have interest in.
For the 2017-2018 school year we will be implementing MTSS (Multi-Tier System of Supports) for our students in K-12. While our elementary has had an MTSS program for several years, we will be extending supports for reading and math in the middle and high school. Thirty minutes per day will be used to help students who need supports in those content areas. The MTSS framework will help our school identify each child’s needs and provide supports as early as possible. We will develop those supports to meet each student’s needs either for enrichment or for remediation of skills. We will regularly check progress and change instruction as need to match each child’s learning.
For MTSS implementation to be successful and sustained across time, it must be a high priority within our school. All students and staff will be involved in the MTSS process. We are committed as a district, to provide the most appropriate supports for the needs of all our students. Look for more information throughout the year on this initiative at USD 286.
