Luckily the weather here is looking a little better
for the first day of school.
It's an especially big day for the La Crosse school
TWO SHOT AT DESK
And here to talk about it is superintendent Randy
Thanks for joining us this morning, Randy.
SUPERINTENDENT, LA CROSSE SCHOOLS
-It's the first day of school for many local school
districts including La Crosse.
In your district, you're starting the school year
with a brand new elementary school, a new charter
high school and of course the second year of your
year-round school is already in session.
What are you looking forward to when it comes to these
changes in your district?
-Education seems to be constantly changing, why are
so many public districts offering so many choices
in education when it comes to choice and charter schools?
-There have also been changes in curriculum.
The new Common Core standards in math and reading
are to be fully implemented in schools across Wisconsin
They are controversial.
Do you feel these standards are good for education?
-Critics say the standards aren't rigorous enough.
Your thoughts on that claim?
-Are there any other exciting new changes or additions
we can expect to see in the La Crosse School District
