Alton School Board members met earlier this week to discuss their goals for the upcoming school year. The goals for the upcoming school year are grouped into five categories, including academic achievement, technology, school climate, financial stability and maintaining and improving buildings and school grounds.

Assistant Superintendent Kristie Baumgartner says that while all of the goals are important, one sticks out more than the others.

Baumgartner says one of the ways they have been able to do that is through the district's one-to-one program. She says that will also be enhanced this year as wireless internet access will be available in all buildings within the district.
