Flagler Schools is an A rated district!

“I am absolutely elated for our students, their families, our faculty and staff, district and school administration, and our Flagler County community. It is something to celebrate,” Superintendent James Tager said upon receiving the news that Flagler Schools is an A-rated district.  This is the first time in 8 years and places Flagler Schools as one of only five A-rated districts across the state. Superintendent Tager attributes this to the teamwork of the people within the school buildings that do the hard work every day.

Among the schools within Flagler County, Indian Trails Middle School, Belle Terre Elementary School, and iFlagler, the district’s virtual school, which was recently named the “Best Small Franchise” by Florida Virtual School, were all “A” schools. Old Kings Elementary, Rymfire Elementary, Wadsworth Elementary, Flagler Palm Coast High, Matanzas High, and Imagine Town Center all earned a “B.” Buddy Taylor Middle and Bunnell Elementary received a “C” but both were within two points of a “B.”

Diane Dyer, Teaching and Learning Executive Director of Flagler Schools points to four items Superintendent Tager had been stressing with the schools during the 2018-2019 school year. “Focusing on literacy and high expectations, paying attention to the early warning system and identifying students who need the most support, increasing the graduation rate, and stressing acceleration. Gains were made in all these areas.  Thank you Flagler Families and Community and join us in celebrating this achievement!

Children Truly are Our Future

Flagler Palm Coast High School students in the “i3 New Tech Academy” have the unique opportunity to help design the future of Town Center.  Students will work in teams with community experts to learn about Town Center and its Innovation District to design concepts and spaces, experience unique field trips and possibly enjoy mystery prizes as part of this educational partnership.

The program challenges students to create innovative design solutions based on their own experiences, as they are ultimately the end-users of the space.

At the i3 New Tech Academy, students learn to work collaboratively in a Project Based Learning approach to the curriculum that utilizes a one-to-one technology environment.  A student driven culture of respect, responsibility, and trust is deeply embedded in the New Tech philosophy.
