One of the most important issues facing our district is the ever-changing nature of state education policy and the affect on our district in terms of academic achievement, funding and enrollment. We must continue to attract and retain students while advocating for fair assessments of our students, staff and district, as well as equitable funding that will provide every child the opportunity to succeed in Akron Public Schools.
