Superintendent's Desk

Dear Parents, Guardians and Community Members, 

January starts the beginning of a new year and for many of us, we consider it a fresh start to setting and attaining new goals. First semester ended and as we start our second semester, we set out to accomplish what we may have yet to finish or pursue new endeavors that will lead to a successful 2020. Our students, teachers and staff worked hard in the first half of the school year and much was accomplished. To date Troy School District achievements have included, but are not limited to:

There will be a winter stretch before spring break arrives on March 30 – April 3.   Students have settled into the second semester and are back into a routine, and teachers are striving for excellence in all areas of educating our students. Idaho State Achievement Testing (ISAT) is scheduled to be completed by May 8, and the Scholastic Assessment Test (SAT) will be given Statewide on April 14.  The scores for last year’s 2019 ISAT tests were well above the state average district wide:

  • English Language Arts  State=55.6%   District=84.7%
  • Math                 State= 45.1%  District= 82.5%
  • Science            State=59.6%    District=81.6%

There will be plenty of extracurricular activities to keep students and parents busy; there’s something for everyone and it’s great to be involved. We are all grateful for the positive support!

I am excited about the start of the second semester, and look forward to a great 2020. We are all so fortunate to live and work in such a tremendous place, and it’s not by happenstance that our community and schools are successful. The credit goes to the community, students, teachers, staff, and parents who all play a role in being part of the experiences that make us who we are and give us the outstanding memories of growing up in Troy, Idaho! Thank you all for making a lasting difference.
