Our Mission Statement:

The New Albany-Floyd County School Corporation works together with parents and the community to provide an outstanding education in a safe, nurturing environment where all are challenged to reach their maximum potential as respectful, responsible, contributing members of a diverse society.

Our Corporation recognizes the parents and community as important members of the educational system.

Parents are welcome in the school buildings, and appointments with teachers, counselors or administrators may be scheduled by calling the school. In addition, each school has an active parent organization that works closely with teachers, administrators and students to enhance the quality of education.

A Parent Council, a Community Council, and a Multicultural Advisory Board, consisting of representatives from schools and local community organizations and agencies, meet four times a year to provide an open line of communication to central administrators. These representatives have opportunities to provide suggestions and feedback, impacting major directions and projects of the corporation.
