Leigh Community Schools Annual Report 2017- 2018



This Annual Report 2016 includes important and informative demographic, curriculum, and assessment data.  The Leigh Community Schools District submits this report to the patrons of the District to help you understand and evaluate your school system.  Through this report we can take pride in our accomplishments and continue to grow in areas of improvement. An important aspect of our school cannot be displayed in a chart and that is the positive daily interaction of staff and students. The school serves as a focal point for our community.  Our teachers live in our community and have a strong personal and working relationship with students and parents. The Board of Education, administrators, teachers and support staff invite you to visit your schools and to get involved in the public education of the Leigh Community Schools students.  Questions about the annual report can be directed to the Superintendent at spetersen@leigh.esu7.org
