Welcome to the Hudson School District and the 2013-14 school year.
The Hudson School District is serious about providing a culture of excellence that maximizes learning to prepare each student for the future. The district's bold strategic vision HSD 2025 guides our efforts. Not only do we engage students through academic challenge but also our caring staff provides rich learning extension opportunities both inside and outside the classroom.
The district will continue to move forward HSD 2025 with our High School Learning for the Future initiative. High School Learning for the Future is an unprecedented commitment to educating all students at higher academic levels. It supports development of the knowledge and skills needed for each student to be college and work ready upon graduation. Today's workforce needs agile, critical thinkers, with highly developed communication skills. High School Learning for the Future provides the challenges students need to succeed in a highly competitive, ever-changing global market.
Hudson Elementary Schools (Kindergarten - Gr. 5) and Middle School (Gr. 6-8) advance HSD 2025 through their efforts to support each student learning at higher levels. Using SMART (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Results-based, Time-bound) Goals along with targeted initiatives, both levels have raised student learning results. 90% of elementary students leave the school year reading at or above their grade level. Hudson Middle School has been recognized two out of the last three years as a state Middle School of Excellence. Combined with Hudson High School effort, work at these levels contributes to Hudson Schools providing Learning for the Future.
