A Message from the Director

December 9, 2014

Dear School Community,

Recently I read an article entitled, “The Charter School Revolution.” The article reported on the amazing growth of charter schools and their overall success. It has been 22 years since the first charter school was launched. The charter school movement is now entering into its third decade. It has had its share of growing pains, but I am confident that charter schools are here to stay. I met with our state superintendent recently, he was asked the question, “How do you envision the relationship between traditional district schools and charters schools in the future?” Superintendent Smith commented that one of the promises of charter schools is that they can serve as laboratories of innovation. Because they have greater autonomy than traditional public schools, and since they tend to attract pioneering educators, thy can try out new approaches to education that, if proven effective, can be transplanted back into the larger public education system. I am hopeful that this spirit of cooperation will continue as charter schools continue to show promising results in terms of student achievement. I am excited to be apart of the charter school movement. Teachers and students of Valley Academy are among some of the best schools. We have much to share with other schools, about teaching and learning, management strategies, staff development, and many other topics.
Excellent schools have always focused on delivering a well-rounded education. Certainly that’s the kind of education the students of Valley Academy enjoy, and it’s the kind of education all of our children deserve.
The diversity in teaching, the creativity, celebrating the arts, and promoting the social emotional intelligence, is what makes Valley Academy a great place to learn. Please join us in that pioneering spirit that makes for the best education possible.

Sincerely,

Mr. Dunkley
