Notes from the Superintendent


I would like to take this opportunity to review the district goals passed by the USD 286 BOE at the November BOE meeting.  After months of discussion and a special Goal Planning session (10/21/14) the following district goals have been established:


Short Term Goals

  • Continue to improve instruction and motivation in all classrooms at USD 286
  • Improve course and program offerings at USD 286
  • Improve communications with our staff, students and community
  • Focus on recruitment and retention of quality teachers


Long Term Goals

  • Focus on core academics and assessments to measure our progress
  • Keep technology current and up to date
  • Maintain buildings and facilities
  • Establish a culture of open communication and high expectations


USD 286 is a top-notch school system with high-achieving students, dedicated staff and a caring community.    We believe that focusing on these goals will ensure that we continue to provide our students with a safe learning environment that will both challenge them academically and prepare them to be college and career ready.  I plan to update our patrons of our progress toward these goals monthly through both the “Blue Devil News” and our school website.



Thank you for your support of our school,




Nathan Hinrichs
