Dear Parents and Students:
On behalf of the City of Leeds Board of Education, I would like to welcome you to the 2020-2021 school year. We are honored that you have elected to send your child to our school system, and we take our responsibility to you seriously. Our goal is to educate the whole child so that he/she is ready to meet the challenges of the ever-changing global society and economy in which we live.
I believe that part of the success of the Leeds School System is based in our commitment to maintaining positive partnerships with all stakeholders: students, parents, teachers, community members, and businesses. We will continue to improve not only standardized scores but to also grow academic offerings in the area of career and technical education in the middle and high school grades. We are excited to provide more for our students than we ever have in the past.
Our school district was awarded District Accreditation in June 2015 by Advanced Ed, and international accrediting agency of 31,000 schools. This is a designation we should all be proud to claim.
Please know that we welcome your involvement in our schools, and we hope to make the 2020-2021 school year one of the best for your child. If I may ever be of service to you, please do not hesitate to contact my office.
John J. Moore
Superintendent of Education
