A Message from Superintendent Dan Zorn

Dear Parents and Families,

The 2022-23 school year has begun and we are off to a strong start! Our students came back to school with renewed energy and optimism, and our staff has come back focused upon improving learning at all grade levels. We are moving full steam ahead and have high expectations for this year.

Our primary goal is to improve the academic achievement of every student in our schools. We are focused on continually improving the instruction we provide the students we serve, and analyze available student achievement data to identify ways in which we can better meet the academic needs of our students. We also continue to update the curriculum materials available to our teachers and students to assure alignment with state standards and are working hard to provide the training our teachers need to best utilize these materials to increase student achievement levels.

We are also committed to improving the safety and security of our school campuses. With the help of our voter approved levy, we have invested in security fencing around schools, access control systems, secure vestibules at front entrances, and the installation of extensive video surveillance systems throughout all buildings. Along with these improvements, we have also increased emergency preparedness training for staff and students. I encourage you to view the safety and security video to learn more about the many ways we are working to provide a safer environment for our students.

We will continue striving to be responsive to our community, work responsibly to be good stewards of tax payer dollars, and align our services with the needs of our students and families. We are grateful for the continued support of our families and community as we work together to make Longview Public Schools the district of choice for families in Southwest Washington. Have a great year!

Dan Zorn, Superintendent
