Ready to View: Student Artwork from Cultural Crawl
Some of the work students created during the 7th grade Cultural Crawl is displayed at the Salina Art Center through January 11. Everyone is welcome to see the selections that were made by participating cultural organizations. You can find the days/times they are open at their website.

The Cultural Crawl has connected students with the relevance of culture to our community. This year, students traveled between stations located in downtown Salina, experiencing curriculum-based activities.
Update: Superintendent Search
Applications are being accepted through January 3 and will be screened by a team chaired by the Kansas Association of School Boards. The narrowed applicant pool will be presented to the Salina School Board on January 10.
  • Three to five candidates will be invited to interview during the week of January 14-18.
  • Each candidate will have a designated day that will include interviews and a public reception.
We'll share details as soon as candidates are selected. ( Everyone is welcome to meet the candidates at their public receptions.)

Recap: Equity Council
The council met in November and worked on two separate surveys for staff and students. The surveys ask about knowledge, attitudes and opinions. Both surveys will be shared with students and staff in early January 2019. The resulting data will be used by the Equity Council as they continue to focus on equity.

Did you know? Equity is not the same as equality.

Equity provides everyone with what they need to be successful (and that is different for all of us) while equality is treating everyone the same.
