•  Core 4 Certificate

    At the heart of great customer service for each district employee are the four tenets of customer service--the Core 4: focusedfast, flexible, and friendly. These principles, also, are key to forging a positive culture within the organization as they are applied, internally, colleague to colleague, as well as to students, families, taxpayers, and the entire community.

    At the end of the Fall 2017 semester, Thomas J. Rusk Middle School was recognized as one of 3 middle schools for having a strong commitment that goes beyond the conversation about what exemplary customer service looks like to becoming the norm for the way we operate in the district every day. Thank you to our office staff for their dedication and support.
