The system strives to provide a safe environment to support students’ mental and physical well-being, and we continually strive to grow and develop academic programs in all areas. The expansion of co-curricular and extracurricular programs and facilities is a priority to meet the needs of the local schools and the passions of the students participating.School culture begins with the mental and physical wellbeing of students and the way each school provides a safe and supportive environment. All traditional schools provide breakfast, lunch, and supper to all students that choose to participate, and virtual students also can receive meal services at assigned distribution sites. A system mental health coordinator works with each school to address concerns and provide additional support as needed. Each Elmore County school actively builds its own culture to provide a positive foundation for every student.Elmore County students’ academic development is a continuous focus and this process has continued to result in system gains each year. The school system oers all traditional curriculums to include Advanced Placement (AP), dual enrollment, advanced curriculum, career-technical education programs, and numerous ne art and athletic courses. Students can pursue these programs at their local base school, The EDGE – Elmore County’s virtual school, and the Elmore County Technical Center. Each student receives a Chromebook to use for the school year in class and at home. This allows each school to use a blended virtual/face-to-face curriculum to better engage students whether they are at school, at home, or traveling.Extracurricular activities are the true passion of many students, and Elmore County continues to expand and develop these opportunities. Athletics and ne arts are vital components of school life, and we enjoy strong community support for these activities.
