Notes from the Superintendent
Welcome to the 2019-20 school year! Along with the new school year comes district-wide improvements. Ashby Public School has undergone several curriculum changes for this year. Grades K-5 are implementing "myView Literacy" which is a comprehensive English Language Arts (ELA) curriculum. It provides a balanced approach to teaching reading, writing, speaking, listening, and thinking through reading and writing workshops. Similarly, Grade 6 is installing the "myPerspectives" ELA curriculum that values the perspectives of the learners; both collectively and individually.
At the middle school level (i.e. grades 6-8), curriculum entitled "Innovation Studio" is being utilized. This is an exciting common core literacy standards-based curriculum focusing on innovation; as its name implies. The lessons enable the student to learn the methods of innovative thinking using problems from science, business, social studies, biology and more!
If you have any questions or concerns feel free to contact me at (218) 747-2257. And finally, I encourage all of you to show your school spirit by attending as many Ashby Arrow events as possible. Let’s work together to make this a great year for Ashby Public Schools. GO ARROWS!

Classrooms throughout Ashby Public Schools utilize technology to enhance student learning. Ashby Schools has undergone many technology upgrades over the summer. All of our servers have been replaced, new network infrastructure has been installed, and a new firewall has been set up to improve security and filter out inappropriate web sites. Teachers have been equipped with new CPU's and second grade students have been assigned iPads to use throughout their elementary years while students new to the high school have been given a chromebook for their one-to-one computing needs.
