Superintendent Update 7/27/21

While the Pandemic changed the way we educate children in the Magnolia School District, it did not change our focus on high expectations, rigorous academics and the importance of social-emotional learning. When we transitioned from virtual learning to our hybrid model last April, students and staff were very happy to return to school. We added additional custodial, health, counseling, food services and instructional support to ensure our schools are safe and the needs of our students and staff are met.
