Many community members share their time to participate in Hudson Reads, a weekly reading mentor program that aims to strengthen the reading skills and confidence of students at Montgomery C. Smith Intermediate School.

HCSD Graduation Rate at a 10-year High

Destination Graduation! Hudson CSD's graduation rate has been on a steady incline, up nearly 20 percentage points since 2012, and Superintendent Suttmeier said the credit goes to our teachers.

“For the first time in a long time, our high school report card has green checks instead of red Xs,” she said. “We should celebrate and recognize the good things that are happening, while there’s still more work to be done...There will be additional challenges, but we’re on the right track.” Using data to track individual student progress and "tell the story," the district has been able to identify key areas and put programs into place to address them.

"The credit lies with the teachers,” Dr. Suttmeier said. “They take the special interest. Once they had that data, they had something they could look at, they could draw a line to each student. All hands were on deck, looking to see how they could help students succeed.” Read the full article >>
