Her address focused on the role of the Department of Public Instruction being a service agency and en- couraged teachers to con- tact them if they needed assistance. The majority of her time was spent talking about the implementa- tion of the Common Core and the testing that will begin in the spring of 2015. She urged teach- ers not to become dis- couraged with the results in the first couple of years oftest'mg and to re- alize that the first test is your baseline and that they should focus on con- tinuous improvement from that point on. Superintendent Baesler stated that she was impressed with the quality of Park River Area School's programs and opportunities for their students and that we have a lot to be proud of in our school.
