News Tech: As the start of classes draws near, the course catalogue for Adrian Public Schools’ 2022–2023 academic year is prepared, and a number of new laptop computers have been ordered. At a meeting on August 8th, the Adrian Board of Education unanimously authorised the courses. Rudy Flores, a trustee, wasn’t there. The district as a whole, from kindergarten to grade 12, has received approval.
The district’s curriculum can be viewed at theadrianmaples-public.rubiconatlas.org/home. “We are willing to do new things and explore various educational opportunities,” Adrian Superintendent Nate Parker said. “Our success wouldn’t be possible without the efforts of our teachers, too. We cannot forget that.” Secretary Mike Buku said the district’s course book “reads like a college manual.”
During his report, Derrick Richards, assistant superintendent for curriculum and instruction, explained the accreditation process of the courses. He said education officials were impressed by the number of courses Adrian has for a district its size. His report was met with praise from several board members. “To me, this is one of our biggest points of pride,” Richards said, regarding Adrian’s selection of courses. “The offerings that we can provide to our students definitely sets them up for future success.”
In addition to the approval of the 2022-23 courses, the board also approved the purchase of new Chromebook laptop computers in an amount not to exceed $237,585. Funding for the purchase would partly be covered by federal Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) funds, said Ryan Skeels, Adrian’s director of technology.
