Summer My Way® Mentor Program:
The Mentor Program is an opportunity for the young adults in the Niles community to step up and become a leader/teacher to the youth in their community. The mentors will learn how to positively interact and help out the young campers. Mentors will do everything from taking attendance, to getting campers to participate in activities, to helping conduct daily lessons. The goal for each mentor by the end of camp is to become an active independent leader of their community.
Come and join our team!!

2) Students are to ride their assigned route bus if available at RL as a shuttle to the high school.
(Students have been allowed to ride any shuttle to the HS. This has changed, if available as a shuttle, they are to get on the bus they take home.

The state is requiring five additional student instructional days next year. As we did not receive an increase in funding to offset the cost of these days, we had to add a few more 1/2 days to the district calendar. We know that we have many working parents who this affects. (More)
When it comes to severe weather and the potential for a school closure, I know that the sooner the decision is made the better for staff, students, and parents. Typically, we make a decision to close for inclement weather collectively with Brandywine and Buchanan. Our goal is to make this decision before 6:00am. (More)
After months of gathering information from community stakeholders through surveys, workshops, forums and other means, leaders of the Niles Community Schools district have developed a new strategic plan that will help guide the district in reaching future goals. On February 1, 2016, the Niles school board ratified the plan by approving the district’s new mission statement, vision statement, beliefs and goal statements — all of which are components of the strategic plan. “To use a Viking analogy, we wanted everybody to have their oars in the water at the same time and all pulling together,” said Greg O’Toole, school board president. “I think this was critical to getting to that point.”
