Welcome to the new SST 13 blog!!

As part of our continued commitment to keep our regional districts and schools updated, we have created a new SST 13 blog.

Weekly, we will add new developments, content, articles and links on focused topic areas to assist in your school improvement efforts. You can look forward to the most current information in the areas of literacy, early learning, PBIS, school improvement, family engagement and supporting students with disabilities.

We also invite you to take some time to explore our revised website and our Twitter feed @state_support13. As always, we are here to support you in all your improvement efforts. Together, we can make a difference! Have a wonderful school year!

Working Together

We shape our self
to fit this world

and by the world
are shaped again.

The visible
and the invisible

working together
in common cause,

to produce
the miraculous.

I am thinking of the way
the intangible air

passed at speed
round a shaped wing

easily
holds our weight.

So may we, in this life
trust

to those elements
we have yet to see

or imagine,
and look for the true

shape of our own self,
by forming it well

to the great
intangibles about us.

–David Whyte from The House of Belonging
