It’s the start of a new year for the West Point School District Board, which brought with it the first school board meeting. Board members convened at 5:30 p.m. Monday to discuss a light agenda and also allotted a fragment of time for Central School (CS) Superintendent Wynesther Cousins to provide to the board the ins and outs of the last year, along with thoughts and expectations for 2014.
“We see great results with what we have in place,” Cousins said.
Cousins said she and her staff work hard to ensure a “strong foundation” for students working their way up the ladder to “make it easier for them to achieve what they want to achieve.”
Central School’s mission statement, according to Cousins, is the production of “respectful, responsible” citizens who are not only academically proficient, but also technologically proficient, so as to further the likelihood of opportunities in future career endeavors.
“We know that our district statement is ‘All students will be successful,’” Cousins said. “ ... We’re trying to make sure we’re working collaboratively to ensure that our scholars are college and career ready.”
