The district’s personal graduation plan (PGP) initiative allow 5th -12th grade students, their parents, and a counselor the opportunity to discuss and investigate future career opportunities. The initiative also allows district administrators to anticipate students’ interest levels for courses being offered and plan according to those interests.

Anticipating growth, voters passed a $13.5 million bond in November 2012. The bond has allowed the district to add classrooms and labs at both the junior high and high school campuses, expand the athletic and agricultural facilities, and provide improvements throughout the district.
