Just how much change can the Humboldt Community School District and its staff and students handle in one year?
That was the big question Dr. Paul Numedahl, Humboldt High School Principal, asked during the Humboldt board of education meeting Monday night, Feb. 15.
Numedahl is among six new administrators who are in their first year in the district. Numedahl reported the district will implement a School Improvement Action Plan with its professional development during the 2021-22 school year.
Numedahl said the district will create Professional Learning Communities with an emphasis on improving student engagement and connectivity.
“We have looked at certain data sets, school attendance and school culture survey, along with informal conversations with students and staff. We asked ourselves ‘what should we be focusing on for school improvement?’ That’s the goal that really came out,” Numedahl said.
“We have looked at criteria indicators that every successful school has and we want to measure ourselves against that, to make sure we are doing the right work,” Humboldt School Superintendent Jim Murray said.
