Good Standing,” thanks to two consecutive years of making adequate
yearly progress on state exams. This means the district is no longer

“This achievement is the result of a cooperative effort of all members of our learning community,” said Green Island Superintendent Dr. Michael Mugits. “Every person, regardless of his or her title, contributed in some way to the overall performance of our students. A clean and safe school environment promotes respect and pride. An effective food service program, along with a successful health office, fulfills important physical needs of children. An efficient team of secretaries supports all members of the school community by helping to increase our productivity. Heatly's dedicated teachers and teaching assistants take a cohesive approach to stimulating the growth of our learners. Our school leaders and teachers are using data to drive instruction and build student skills. In addition, the financial support of our community and the leadership of the officials they elect as representatives serve as a significant investment in the learning process.”
Congratulations to the Green Island community for this achievement.
