A Message From Southeastern Superintendent, David Shea
Welcome to Southeastern Local School District. Our focus is to be a district that excels in achieving all “A’s” (Academics, Athletics, Agriculture and the Arts). Our goal is to produce well-rounded students that are prepared for the challenges of the 21st Century.
Southeastern Local Schools has experienced professionals dedicated to educate all students in kindergarten through 12th grade. Caring for the youth of South Charleston is a community-wide endeavor and we are extremely proud to be part of the process.
Southeastern is pleased to be able to provide students with high level educational options. On top of the traditional courses Southeastern offers other academic programs such as: Title I, Gifted, Gateway (Jr High STEM Courses), Project Lead the Way (High School STEM Courses) and College Credit Plus (CC+).
All students in the 8th and 10th grades are able to take the ACT ASPIRE assessment at no cost to the student. This college readiness test helps students build a solid foundation for future academic and career success while providing the needed information to address high-priority issues. The ACT ASPIRE test also helps students measure their current academic development, explore career/training options as well as making plans for the remaining years of high school and post-graduation.
Southeastern is proud that we are able to offer a variety of extra curricular activities. Along with traditional sports, we have just recently added Wrestling and Bowling to our varsity sports. Southeastern also offers band and choir plus extra curricular academic choices such as FFA, FCCLA, Power of the Pen and Quick Recall.
Southeastern continues to move forward academically by utilizing the MyMath curriculum grades K-4. The district has also trained Reading, Title I, and Intervention Teachers in the Orton Gillingham phonemic awareness intervention strategies. The district continues to equip classrooms with Smartboards, school-wide Wi-Fi, and Chromebooks to ensure our students have access to current technology.
The district also highly values the partnerships it has with organizations such as the Miami View PTA, Southeastern Athletic Boosters, Southeastern Band Boosters, FFA Boosters, DARE, Clark County Sheriff’s Department, South Charleston Police Department, South Charleston Village, Community Club, Madison Township Fire Department, and Yamada North America among others.
We continue to make progress toward educating our students for the ever changing workforce while providing them with the necessary resources for future success. At the same time we will remain mindful of our heritage and the importance it has in our everyday lives.
