Help Us Choose Our New District Logo

We're asking for your help! As one of the initiatives of our 2019 strategic plan, Troy City School District is developing a refreshed logo to help clarify the district's position as an educational and community leader.

The new logo will be used for communication from the district offices. The new logo will not change our school colors or affect the high school logo or mascot.

Go the following link to help choose the new district logo:

DISTRICT STRATEGIC PLANNING PROCESS

UPDATE - Survey extended until Nov 16th.

The Troy City School District is reaching out to all community members to help the district develop a plan for the future.  That plan will set priorities, focus energy and resources, strengthen operations, and ensure that employees and stakeholders are working toward common goals. This process will ensure the community and school officials can establish agreement around intended outcomes, and assess and adjust the organization’s direction in response to an ever changing environment that puts children and student learning at the center. This strategic planning process will ensure our schools will meet the needs of our students and community.

Student Fees

2017/18 student fees will function a bit differently this year. The District will not charge fees unil the end of the first quarter. This will allow for us to wait until student enrollments are finalized as well as all free/reduced lunch applications are processed. Families are still able to put funds on their student's lunch accounts using EZpay. Currently fees from previous years can still be paid both online and in person. New fees will not show up until the end of the first quarter.
