District Mission Statement:
The Tekonsha Community School District is committed to providing a safe secure environment that fosters the love of learning in which individuals can realize their full potential.
The teaching staff at TCS strives each day to prepare our youth for the 21st Century. Teachers use multiple techniques in the classroom such as: technology, hands-on activities, meaningful lessons, etc., to engage students in learning. High school students can take college courses through dual enrollment.
Today, TCS has three updated computer labs throughout the elementary and high school for student use to gain technology skills and classroom knowledge. In addition, a classroom set of iPads are being implemented in the high school English and Science classes. Teachers are also using digital projectors to integrate digital media within any lesson. Students and parents have the ability to monitor their child’s grades through a 24/7 online grade-book system. In addition, high school students can enroll in specialty classes online through e2020.
Eighty-six percent of our student body has participated in at least one sport activity throughout the school year. Tekonsha has a no-cut sports policy. Students learn skills in sportsmanship that enhance their well-being.
Faculty and Staff:
TCS has nineteen teaching staff that are devoted and passionate about teaching students throughout the school district, in addition to two great building secretaries that assist both the staff and students in being successful. A brand new superintendent that has the passion of leading TCS to the next level has joined the district. Finally, a group of people in and out of the classroom such as paraprofessionals, cooks, bus drivers, and custodians, are among those that make this school a great place for staff and students. Everyone is friendly, builds great professional relationships, and wants every learner to succeed. Your child will not be a number at Tekonsha Community Schools but a unique individual.
