Our School

The Woodbury Town School Board, with the collaboration of the administration, teachers, the board and the town, adopted a list of school ends in 2010. These ends essentially function as a directive overview for educating Woodbury’s elementary students.

The current board, after a considerable amount of dialogue, determined the school ends require re-examination. Do these make sense for the current school? Are the ends adhered  to? If not why, why not, and should the ends be rewritten, or should practices within the school alter? 

As the board’s most challenging work is presently Act 46, ends work has not been undertaken. The process of rewriting these ends, while needed, poses a significant time commitment and a need to solicit thoughtful feedback. To adequately accomplishment this endeavor, the board would need to prioritize this work; at this time, the board’s energies are engaged in the process of understanding Act 46. The work of rewriting the ends is yet to come.
