Welcome to Garfield School District

Welcome to the Garfield Public Schools website. The Garfield Schools are in partnership with residents, parents, teachers, administrators, and students. The schools and families are working together to provide a successful learning experience for all students.

 

Administrators and teachers consistently work to update district curriculum and develop programs to remain on the cutting edge of educational issues. Staff development and support are extensive and on-going throughout the school year. Our schools have strong and supportive parent associations and an active educational foundation that enhance the mission of our district. The relationship between the schools and community is excellent and lends to the overall sense that Garfield is a great place to live and work.

 

The purpose of this site is to provide you with essential information about our schools and inform you on the many diverse programs the district offers to enhance your child’s academic experience. Whether you are looking for school locations, homework assignments, calendars, or testing dates, we hope that you will use this site often and feel free to share your questions, comments, and suggestions with us.

District News & Events


v Garfield Schools Go Green:

Garfield Schools is promoting "Going Green" by utilizing Parent Portal for all grades, progress reports and report cards. Our new Parent Portal system allows parents to view their child's academic history via the Internet. Parents were given their username and  password to access their child's portal. Not only is Parent Portal good for the environment but allows parents to have constant feedback with how their child is doing in school.  Let us know what you think about using Parent Portal to access report cards.

v Parent Tech Workshops:

Parent Tech Workshops will be held all the schools in the months of October and November. Parents will be invited to learn about Internet safety, resources on the district website and the many online educational resources their child can use for homework help or just for fun. Parents will be able to explore these resources in the computer lab during this hands on workshop. They also will be given a tour of district online subscriptions such as Study Island and Discovery Education that students use in school. Please look out for Tech Workshops at your school.

 

v Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights:

Beginning September 2011, the Garfield School District will be implementing all procedures required by State Law on Harassment, Intimidation, and Bullying.  The Garfield School District prohibits all acts of harassment, intimidation, and bullying of any pupil or other person. Learn about the Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights Act.
