Great news for Pleasant Local Schools!

Over the past year, Pleasant has purchased services from the NCOESC for K-12 special education services. While this service has been great, the daily financial rate has been significant. During the past year and a half, several community members have expressed a desire for the local districts to collaborate more in the sharing of services. Thus, I am excited to announce that Ridgedale and Pleasant will be collaborating to deliver student service needs. This collaboration will provide additional amounts of time for both Ridgedale and Pleasant, as well as a more intentional and collaborative approach for student services. Further, I am honored to share that Dr. Shelly Dason has agreed to accept the position of Student Services Director. She will specifically be responsible for overseeing our Special Education Department.

Second, we are thrilled to announce that the next principal of Pleasant Elementary school will be Travis Issler. Travis has served as a teacher on special assignment for the past 3 years. His role has been to serve as a Dean of Students. As many of you know, Travis has a passion for students, a strong commitment for putting relationships first, has a drive to serve and empower others, and focus on instructional best practices. These qualities make him an excellent choice, as he will do an outstanding job leading our elementary building.
