Superintendent's Message

To our families and community members,

I am honored to work alongside such a phenomenal team of people in Barnwell School District 45 that have accomplished so much over the past few years.  We have seen increased academic growth; our students are earning more college credits and industry credentials; the district has increased safety measures across our schools; we have received millions of dollars in instructional and facility grants; our technology department has put over 3,000 new technology devices and pieces of equipment into the hands of our students and teachers; and our district is in a much stronger financial position districtwide while still increasing salaries and modifying salary schedules to benefit our employees.

My goal is that we continue to work toward and accomplish the goals we set forth for our district in an effort to support our students and community, as well as improve the quality of life we all share.  I'm very excited about the future of our district and feel grateful we have such a supportive and dedicated school board working toward one common goal - doing what is best for our students.  Each year brings another set of opportunities which allow us to become stronger and more successful, and I look forward to that challenge in the upcoming year.

Looking forward to continued success,
Crissie Stapleton
Superintendent, Barnwell School District 45

  • Virtual vs. Face-to-Face Survey

    Parents whose children are enrolled in the Virtual Program may request that their student(s) return to face-to-face instruction at the end of the first semester. As we plan for a successful 2021 Spring Semester, we need our families to submit their requests by November 20, 2020. We know that the pandemic has brought many challenges to our families and teachers, and we want to make sure we continue to offer the services that best support our community in the safest environment possible. Requests will be granted in the order in which they are received. https://forms.gle/7XyZAbWp3jXBfKWX8
