Message from the Superintendent

     

 Jeff Blaser - Superintendent

Welcome to Cascade Idaho. My name is Jeff Blaser, I am the superintendent of the Cascade School District. The community of Cascade has been built on strong traditions and supportive families working together to get through challenging economic times. Within this fantastic community we are a school committed to character development and a rigorous education.

Our Mission: Engage every student every day in character development and rigorous education.

            The staff is excited to see growth in every student and to have positive experiences as we advance through the year. The administration has engaged the community to identify the immediate family educational needs. We have also held a town hall meeting and monthly community forums called “School Talks”, in an attempt to identify how we can best interact with our community and how we can improve our service for greater student achievement. At the monthly gatherings we have discussed such topics as student social-emotional health, school wide behavior expectations, our new elective courses, CTE, and the implementation of our new English Language Arts curriculum and the need to update to a new secondary Math Curriculum for our students.

As a Pre-K – 12 staff we have a unique opportunity to work together as our students learn and grow from year to year. We are working consistently to operate as a true Professional Learning Community, setting aside protected time each week as a staff to meet and collaborate about strategies that can better help our students grow academically and socially as we move forward on our mission. It has been said that, “The school is the community and the community is the school.” The Cascade school staff has taken this saying to heart, we are committed to better community engagement, better communications with our stakeholders and a high level of academic performance for our kids. As superintendent, I am proud to be called a Cascade Rambler and look forward to our journey together this year.

            If you are considering relocating in the West Central Mountain Region, please stop by and visit our school. Ask for me, Jeff Blaser. Let me lead you on a tour of our school and invite you to be a part of our journey in Cascade.
