We will equip all students with the knowledge, technological proficiency, and personal skills necessary to succeed in an increasingly complex society. Our ultimate goal is to instill in our students a desire for lifelong learning.
Children with special needs can often benefit from a number of therapies and, generally, the sooner they receive treatment, the better the outcomes will be. But, how do you know if a child needs help?

District seeks applicants for Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Advisory Committee
SALINE, MI February 13, 2019 – At the February 12, 2019 meeting, the Saline Area Schools Board of Education announced the creation of a Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) Advisory Committee. The committees' charge is to develop a mission statement for the committee, adopt definitions, and establish goals. The DEI committee will report monthly to the Board of Education.
“After four community conversation meetings centered on issues of diversity, it became clear that developing a focused, work-oriented committee to explore diversity and inclusion was necessary. Making solid recommendations to the Board of Education is the next step,” said Superintendent Scot Graden. “The committee will be relatively small - 15 to 20 members - but additional opportunities for participation and feedback are available for those interested.”
Interested community members are encouraged to apply by Friday, February 22, 2019.

The Special Education Department in Saline has partnered with Gym America for weekly adapted physical education classes - centered around the sport of gymnastics. Kyri Kemp, a Saline High School teacher, provided feedback on the powerful opportunity that has surfaced through the new partnership:
"Our Saline High School Life Skills class has had six students attend a weekly adapted PE class at Gym America. The students are supported by four of our high school staff members, along with Coach Brian (and others) from Gym America. Coach Brian has done an awesome job creating positive a gymnastics experience for our students. We begin with stretches and warm up exercises. The GA staff infuses gymnastics vocabulary into our sessions to give our students a unique in-depth experience. Our students have had the opportunity to access equipment in an adapted way such as the bars, balance beams, trampoline and the vault into the foam pit! It's been an awesome partnership and we are thankful for this opportunity."
