Over the course of the last three years we have been able to add several services that benefit our students and staff. The Viking Digital Academy has been instrumental in providing a service to a number of our students that choose a nontraditional experience. Many students that may have not graduated on time or not graduated at all have been able to complete the required course requirements for graduation. Teays Valley High School has also added three new options for high school students. Career Pathway courses provide students with skills to make them employable or transition them to additional education opportunities. Career Pathway courses are designed to allow students to develop high-demand career skills, save time and money after high school or just explore an area of interest. The Information Technology Pathway, Engineering Pathway and the Business Pathway are made up of 4 year-long courses. Students may take one each year of their high school career or multiple courses if they want to complete a Pathway in 3 years or less. Students who complete 4 courses in a pathway have the potential to earn articulated credit. Courses may be taken as single electives if there are no prerequisites.

The district continues to increase the emphasis of technology. The number of Chromebooks has been significantly increased over the last few years. Although the district does not have a one to one initiative, our students have increased access to technology. Wireless access points have been increased and servers have been changed or updated to aide in the network traffic flow. The district has also placed a high priority in training staff to utilize technology throughout instruction. Teaching staff have experienced increased professional development opportunities to increase their knowledge of technology as a teaching tool,

Not only is academic excellence a goal at Teays Valley, but a positive culture for all our staff and students is paramount. The district has added counselors, nurses, health aides and mental health services for our students and families. We have also emphasised the importance of establishing positive relationships amongst staff and students. Students learn better in a culture that is welcoming, accepting and nourishing. We want students to know that they are in a safe place and can expect help if asked. This positive school culture is extended as community projects throughout the district. Our students are encouraged to build the same positive relationships with those in our community.

As students experience the Viking Way, it is our goal to build hope. We want our students to look to the future with a positive attitude knowing that they can truly be successful and lead a meaningful life. We want them prepared to continue their education, to have the skills necessary to enter the work community and inspired to make a positive difference in our society.

I look forward to another great year at Teays Valley. I’m excited about what we have done so far and I am optimistic that we will continue to be the very BEST at providing excellent instruction for our kids.
