Superintendent 2014-15 WELCOME

The 2014-15 school year is just around the corner with the first day of school on Tuesday, August 19th.   I am fortunate to be the superintendent in two communities that strongly value public education.  USD223 has ideal communities in which to raise a family and obtain a great education and are committed to providing the best resources available to prepare our students for their future. 

The Barnes-Hanover-Linn School District believe effective schools are the result of the collaborative efforts of the Board of Education, administration, teachers, staff, parents and community members. In providing our children with the best education possible, our Board of Education and educational staff show us time and again that they are committed to providing an educational environment for our students that is safe, welcoming, nurturing and challenging. Most importantly, it is an environment worthy of our fine communities and devoted to developing our most precious resource, our children. 

USD223’s Mission Statement is:  “Our primary goal is a cost-effective, high-quality educational program as it pertains to curriculum, personnel, and facilities for all students in that the program meets community needs and standards as is indicative of rural values and standards set forth by the local and educational communities”.  In supporting this mission statement, USD223 has a very productive and active school board with the following patrons again representing the district for the 2014-15 school year:  Daryl Bott, Diane Gugenhan (President), Joselyn Kearn, Jim Kruse, Larry Nicholson (Vice-President), Alan Ohlde and Jim Zarybnicky.  All community members or district patrons are welcome to attend school board meetings which will meet the second Monday of each month beginning at 7:00pm.  All meetings will be held at the Barnes District office except Septembers meeting will be at Hanover Schools and the October meeting will be at Linn Schools.  These Board members represent your School District - so should you have any concerns or questions, feel free to call or e-mail them. 

Our faculty has high expectations for all students. Resource support is made available so that all students have the opportunity to succeed. Our curriculum is aligned to meet educational standards, and sequentially organized to prepare our students for their high school studies and beyond. Along with a strong academic program, we strive to help students achieve the social skills needed to become good, productive citizens.  The Barnes-Hanover-Linn District provides our students with opportunities to participate and enjoy a variety of school activities, clubs, and sports. These programs enrich our children's educational experiences while promoting school spirit and tradition. 

As superintendent, it is my honor to again lead and guide the district for the 2014-15 school year. My goal is to help provide the very best educational experiences for our children and our future. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about our schools or the district
