The 4 Pillars

The journey started in 2011 when a strategic plan developed by administrators, teachers, parents and other community stakeholders charted a new course for the Colonial School District. Since that time, great strides have been made to put students on the pathway to becoming 21st century learners who are truly college and career ready. Included in this journey with students are families and more than 1,300 employees; together it is what Superintendent Dr. Dusty Blakey calls “The Power of We.”

Early Childhood

By investing in Pre-k programming, our students will be more prepared for success at the kindergarten level and beyond.

Leadership and Learning

By creating a culture of leadership, Colonial will strive to lead the way in cutting edge practices while continuing to listen & learn from parents, community and colleagues. Topics to include in conversation:


Through collaboration, research and professional development, we will create innovative educational and professional experiences for our students and staff.

Access and Opportunity

By providing access to services such as health clinics and our summer feeding programs, opportunities arise for residents of our school district that will ultimately enhance the Colonial educational experience.
