This is due in large part to creating balanced budgets that eliminate unnecessary expenditures, while leveraging grant resources, such as the School Maintenance Grant and Energy Efficient Grant, to make improvements.

During the 2014-2015 fiscal year, the school district bought new computers, including laptops, upgraded its wireless systems to give students greater access to various online tools and technologies, and renovated Hoffman Stadium. Properly budgeted dollars also expanded its advanced placement (AP) program. Through open enrollment, the school district ensures that all students have a chance to challenge themselves and establish a sound future in academia. In fact, 23 percent of students in the class of 2014 scored 3+ on at least one AP exam. This was 3 percent higher than the national average.
