With 2018 now complete, I am excited that the second
semester is underway as we work towards making 2019 the best it can be.
Discussions for the future of Options Schools are always
exciting to be a part of, whether they take place with the Options staff,
students, families or members of our great community.
One of our biggest current focuses is on helping Options
continue to grow across Hamilton County and throughout the state of Indiana
with the development of programs such as our distance education
As we grow the group of students we serve, we are also
growing our staff in multiple areas, which will allow us to grow successfully
and positively by having a strong foundation cemented by a high-quality staff
that supports everything we do.
While we work on setting ourselves up to improve the current
quality of services we provide, we are also actively targeting additional
growth in the programs we offer.
Our eyes remain forward as we look to replicate our
successful programs in new communities as we work towards our goal of doubling
our current number of students served in the next five years.
