Also, Fairview has done some hiring recently, welcoming eight new teachers after eight retired last school year. "We put teachers through a pretty grueling five step interview process and we're very confident we have the finest and very best people. The staff is amazing, there's nobody here I would trade," Erik Kincade, Fairview Superintendent, said.
When it comes to easing the nerves of students, the high school has a mentoring program where upperclassmen guide the freshmen and the middle school will now use the same concept. There are 300 iPads being used by teachers and students, triple last year's number.
