Statement By: Education Commissioner Dr. Eric J. Smith Regarding visit to Crossroad Academy Charter School in Gadsden County

I had the pleasure of joining State Board of Education member Mark Kaplan for a visit today to Crossroad Academy Charter School in Gadsden County where we were able to witness first-hand the wonderful work this A-rated school is doing to prepare our children for success. During our visit we met with both students and staff, and observed classrooms where inspiration filled the air and thoughtful instruction fed lively discussions. Principal Forehand and his staff should be commended for their efforts to truly make a difference in the lives of these children and I look forward to visiting with them again soon to learn more about their accomplishments and unique approaches to learning.
