Triton logoThe Triton School Board shared their core values at a public board meeting in May 15. The meeting had been rescheduled from the usual meeting date.

Superintendent Jeremy Riffle said, “As good as we are, we know that we can always achieve better results. We constantly try to find better ways of doing our work, and when we achieve our goals, we set higher standards.”

Riffle announced that the corporation staff will receive training in human trafficking on June 5. Also in June, Rex Cook, Mooresville superintendent, will be at the Triton location to review and instruct staff on how to conduct a reunification drill. Triton High School Principal, Robert Ross, and Riffle attended a school safety specialist two-day conference and will be implementing improvements to help keep both staff and students safe.

Riffle explained that the school staff and board members endeavor to be good partners within the community and encourage support of local individuals and organizations. Riffle said, “We demonstrate wise stewardship of public resources and ensure that our graduates are ready to shoulder their civic responsibilities.”

They are in the process of forming a corporation service project for the next school year. They hope to extend Trojan PRIDE to grades 7-12 for the 2019-2020 school year. Efforts are being made to include core values of Personal Responsibility, Respect, Integrity, Determination, and Enthusiasm.

Triton Jr./SR. High School is ranked 31st in the state by U.S. News and World Report. Triton School Corporation is the highest ranked school on Marshall and Kosciusko Counties. “Our learning organization requires that we maintain high expectations for one another and for self.” Riffle said.

The corporation continues to use research and data analysis as they make decisions. Riffle said, “We can enhance efficiency and effectiveness by achieving alignment across our system.”

Triton recently participated in a County Job Fair as they try to reach new employees in the area of maintenance, substitute teachers, and potential school bus drivers.

The Triton Activities Open House will be held on Thursday, May 23 from 5:30-7:00. Riffle said, “After reaching substantial completion on Monday, we are excited to share all of the hard work and effort that has gone into this facility with our community.”
