Kyrene School District has been educating children since 1888, and over the past 130 years, we have worked hard to establish a reputation as a high performing district. While we embrace our history, we continue to pursue innovative programs that will ensure our students are prepared for the future.
As we move forward, the critical challenge facing the District will be a continued response to the pandemic. Addressing the budgetary impact of reduced revenue and increased expenses related to COVID-19 will be a high priority, in addition to keeping pace with the benchmarks related to the goals and objectives of our strategic plan and commitment to student achievement. We are confident that we now have the systems in place to respond to these challenges. The use of best financial and budget management practices has never been more critical, and we will continue to make improvements to ensure the District can meet its obligations to our students, their families, our staff and the community to retain our status as a high performing district.
