The Chippewa Falls Area Unified School District is a special place. A large district set within a small town provides a unique context for our students and families. We are able to provide the opportunities of a Division I school district while maintaining small-town familiarity and comfort.
We have a great deal to be proud of. Our schools perform at levels that exceed the state average. Career exploration begins at the elementary level and becomes increasingly personalized throughout the middle and high school years. Non-core offerings exceed the state recommendations, with daily music classes and free music lessons beginning in 6th grade. After-school programming provides “something for everyone,” with diverse options ranging from robotics to foods classes to volunteerism clubs. Our robust athletic program offerings boast a wide range of opportunities. Our highly qualified staff are committed to making the educational experience of CFAUSD students meaningful. Chippewa Falls is exceptional because of our people.
Also special in Chippewa Falls is the partnership and support of our community. In February of 2014, the district engaged over 100 community members in a Community Conversation for Educational Excellence. Through interactive dialogue, the district learned what the community wants for its schools. This information was used to inform Board Governing Policies for Educational Excellence and the District Strategic Plan. We are proud to be able to point to specific constructs and programs in our school district that are the direct result of community input.
Our district is committed to continuous improvement. Today is great, but we are continually striving to make tomorrow even better. In our district, we set annual measurable goals that are derived from our Strategic Plan. These goals cascade down to buildings and departments at all levels to ensure we are working together with the same focus and progressing in the same direction. We review our progress indicators regularly and adjust our sails if needed. We collect feedback from staff, parents, students, and the community. This feedback drives our work to provide exceptional service to our stakeholders.
On behalf of the staff of the Chippewa Falls Area Unified School District, thank you for allowing us the opportunity to serve the students and community here. Our best days in Chippewa Falls are still to come! We are glad you are a part of them.
Proud Superintendent of the Chippewa Falls Area Unified School District
