Superintendent Monthly Message (English)


Dear Dayton Families                                                                         January 13, 2023

I hope that 2023 is off to a great start for all of you.

January is School Board appreciation month. Our School Board members are volunteers and work hard to improve our schools and create a great learning environment for our students and staff. Two of our Board members, Kraig Albright and Dr. Jeff Crapper, are members of an Oregon School Boards Association committee as well. Being a Board member requires time reading the board agenda items as well as researching trends and best practices in education. When you see any of our seven board members, Kraig Albright, Ann Coleman, Dr. Jeff Crapper, Debbie Kearns, Terri Paysinger, Larry Ringnalda, or Chris Wytoski, please thank them for their service.

We do have two openings on the budget committee. If you are wanting to get involved with the school district this is a great opportunity that does not require a huge time commitment. The budget committee generally meets twice in May to review the proposed budget for the next school year and then recommend the budget to the School Board for approval. If you are interested in serving on the budget committee please contact our District Secretary Katie Terry at [email protected].

It is that time of year when weather delays and closures may happen. In the event of a cancellation or delay the district will send notifications via Facebook and ParentSquare as well as notifying the media and posting on the website. We will make these determinations as early as possible.

We encourage the community to stop by our schools and visit. We especially want to see you at the events that happen throughout the year. Our staff and students work hard everyday. We are extremely thankful to the community for your continued support. Go Pirates!
