For the past several years, our focus has been on professional development. We are now turning our focus to strong instructional materials that support standards-based instruction.

This year, more than 60 students in second through fourth grades graduated from the Team Read program at Hazel Valley and Midway. Team Read pairs students who are reading at least one year below grade level with trained teen coaches.
