Barker Central School DistrictBarker, NY 14012
Dear Barker Community,
On behalf of the entire Barker School community, I would like to welcome you to the 107th school year of the Barker Central School District. The school district looks forward to partnering with our entire community as we build upon all of the past successes and accomplishments of our students that have kept us ranked in the top 25% of school districts in Western New York (as reported by Business First) over the last 10 years.
Unique to a school community is the fresh start we have each year. Students have new teachers, new classes, new routines, and more each September. I personally am excited to be a part of such a rich tradition here in Barker for my first time. This summer, I have had a chance to meet and talk with many staff and community members and I am amazed by how everyone is eagerly anticipating the start of school and the new year. I am truly energized and ready for our students to again come through the front doors and begin the next chapter of their lives.
While each school year may bring new changes, one aspect of our learning community that does not is the desire to provide the best possible experience for our children each and every day. Our staff and faculty are extremely dedicated to our students and ensuring each child achieves to their fullest potential. With this in mind, if there is ever a question regarding your child or their education, please do not hesitate to reach out to the appropriate faculty and staff if you need anything at all. We are here to support you and your students.
As you look forward to the new year, I would also like to remind you of the wide variety of ways you can get information from the District. This edition of the Banner and the District Calendar are two very important resources to keep and ‘hang on the fridge’ but you can also find information related to many, if not all, of your needs at the District webpage at www.barkercsd.net. Specifically, you can find information about the District Code of Conduct, Dignity for All Students Act, Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), school nutrition, school safety, various school procedures, and other information that is building specific.
We look forward to making this the best school possible and provide the best learning opportunities we can for our kids. I hope to see you soon around the District!
