Take a stroll through the LuVerne Elementary school building and you can’t help but notice the changes taking place in the classroom.
School superintendent Jon Hueser had a lot on his plate when he arrived in July of 2013 to take over leadership of the district.
While Hueser had to guide the district through the dissolution of the Corwith-Wesley district, LuVerne’s longtime educational partner since 1982, he kept a steady hand on improving the district’s financial position while focusing the staff on implementing new initiatives to better educate the 60-plus students in grades pre-kindergarten through sixth grade.
Upgrades and improvements have been large and small, inside and outside the LuVerne building.
“We have put in new playground equipment. We re-did some bathrooms in the building. We’ve got a new bus. We are continuing like a school should. Now all of our students in grades K-6 each have a Chromebook available to them. They don’t take them home, but they all have one assigned to them,” Hueser said.
“Our lower level students are pretty much one-to-one with ipads. We have put in place some of those things to aid our efforts,” Hueser said. “Next thing to me is moving all the kids. Moving them all up.”
