Southwest Local School District is kicking off the new school year with the inaugural “State of the Schools” – designed as a fun, festive and informative evening. The event, which is free and open to the public, will be held Tuesday, August 7 at 7 p.m. in the Activity Center.

“There have been so many advances made in numerous areas,” states Superintendent John C. Hamstra. “We wanted to ensure as many parents and local residents were aware of this progress and to share what we plan to accomplish in the coming year.”

He adds, “This is our way of celebrating the achievements made thus far and to kick off what we know will be an excellent year for our students and our district. It’s an opportunity for parents, students, alums and the public to catch up on all of the recent progress and to hear about upcoming changes, just in time for the start of the new academic year.”

All are encouraged to attend the event, which features entertainment by the high school band plus updates on technology and curriculum, district finances, progress on the four new schools and high school renovation, and more.
