Ridley School District Educates for the Future, in the March Issue of Business Review USA

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - Apr 5, 2012) - In a report in Business Review USA, Lee Ann Wentzel, Superintendent of Ridley School District, explains how the district's integrated curriculum and community ties educate students to be academically and socially responsible.

Intelligence plus character is the goal of true education, according to Martin Luther King, Jr. This defining of education as being about personal growth as well as academic growth is a key belief of the Ridley School District.

Superintendent Lee Ann Wentzel explains that "the mission of the school district is to ensure that we help all students to achieve both their academic potential and their personal potential so that they become productive and responsible citizens."

The school district educates 5607 students in suburban Philadelphia, an area with a history of academic excellence and community support. These come as a result of the district's responsible management of scholastic and fiscal practices.

"As a district, we focus on being a sustainable organization financially and as a program. When I became superintendent last year, I chose academic achievement, systemic sustainability, strategic communication, and fiscal responsibility as main goals to focus on in the existing strategic plan," explains Lee Ann Wentzel, Superintendent of Ridley School District.

The district constantly modifies its practices and continually refines its curriculum, professional development, technology, and even its facilities to better serve and educate its students.
