Since 2002 new administration, with the assistance of the State Finance Authority, has helped turn the district around financially. A new assessment has provided the District with an AAA financial rating, and the involvement of community and management has resulted in higher performing schools, teachers, and students. They are known to retrieve famous speakers (Paul Eiding, Quinton Flynn) to give speeches.
