I would like to welcome you to Ashland-Greenwood Public Schools. Having been organized in 1866, AGPS is rich in tradition!
Ashland-Greenwood is defined by our strong family-oriented community and our commitment to excellence in education. As a whole, Ashland-Greenwood Public Schools is committed to its mission of cooperatively promoting life-long learning, to awaken, develop and enhance individual potential.
Once again, our administrative team spent time discussing this year’s mantra. We once again came to a consensus that continuing “RAISING THE BAR!” in 2021-2022 was still very appropriate. Obviously, this past year continued to provide challenges related to growth, social tensions, and of course the Coronavirus Pandemic. Without question, such challenges may cause negativity, ambivalence, and complacency to creep in. However, by pulling together and leaning on one another, this did not occur. I am so looking forward to teaming with you in 2021-22, hitting the “reset button” and “RAISING THE BAR” to even greater heights!
As I continue to operate in my current role, I observe on a daily basis the high bar and expectations that exist within this great district. A huge factor in maintaining such a high bar is a tremendous amount of collaboration and fellowship among all invested stakeholders. A huge THANK YOU to all of our stakeholders for the continued and ongoing support.
I encourage and welcome your participation in Ashland-Greenwood Public Schools. Thank you for your continued support.
Mr. Jason Libal
