Principal's Message

As I enter my sixth year as Principal of DCS, our school focus is "Getting Better" at everything we do.

As I look around the school, I am proud to see my fingerprints starting to appear on the school culture. Delburne Centralized School is a great place to spend my days. In previous years, our broad goals of Redesign and Our School helped us create a more personalized learning environment for students. I am incredibly proud of our high school completion rate and I know that a significant number of our graduates are continuing their education through post-secondary institutions and trades. Our staff genuinely knows and cares about our students, which makes it nearly impossible to "slip through the cracks".

Two key goals for the coming year are to increase support for students and expand the opportunities for students in our school. We are introducing a concept called the "Learning Center" so students who require specialized and targeted supports will get additional assistance. One example of expanded opportunities is the return of a high school shop program. I am very pleased with what I am seeing so far.It's going to be a great year!

Sincerely,

Ted Hutchings

Principal, Delburne Centralized School
