Expectations, Values, and Performance - The Trojan Way

This year the Arcanum-Butler Local School District will be implementing "The Trojan Way" in an effort to provide clear, consistent expectations for all Prek-12 students.  The Trojan Way represents excellence and how our district and those who make up our district represent our school and community.  It is the belief that Arcanum-Butler Local Schools will provide the best school experience in our county and region for students to grow and learn in preparation for life.  Our students will exhibit Trojan Pride and represent their families and our school in the classroom and in extra-curricular performances and competitions.  The Trojan Way means High Academic Expectations & Achievement, a Set of Core Values, and a High Performing Staff!   The Trojan Way will be present in all that we do and evident in the actions of our students and the actions of our staff. 

The District Leadership Team identified key expectations for success, a set of core values and positive teacher traits.  Check them out under our Mission Statement and help us out by supporting The Trojan Way!

Arcanum-Butler Staff Development Days Kick-Off the Year

Before kids begin school each year, staff members of Arcanum-Butler Local Schools are extremely busy preparing classrooms, developing lessons and participating in professional development.  This year the staff participated in two days of in-service that included a motivational/inspirational speaker, Dave Weber, and guest Chief Deputy Mark Whittaker, from the Darke County Sheriff's Department.
