LINTON, Ind. (WTHI) -- This is superintendent Kathy Goad's first year at Linton-Stockton school.

Tuesday night she invited alum, parents, business owners and anyone in the community to find out about the future of the school corporation and help shape students futures.

"We work together because the children that attend this school are going to be the adults in this community in the future and we want to make sure that we are developing the best young adults that we can," Goad said. 

The room was filled with people who were curious about how the school was going to help the future of Linton.

One of those ways is with a new graduate profile.

"It's a promise to your students to your parents to your community to our employees that if a student graduates from Linton Stockton high school they will have certain attributes," she said 

Linton- Stockton is the first school of their size in this area to have a program like this.

Goad says it's something she thinks all schools should take part in.

She wants the community to know when they run into a Linton-Stockton student or graduate they won't be disappointed!

"We will develop benchmarks at each grade level that our students have to master in order that we can assure and fulfill that promise," she said.

Tonight anyone who attended the meeting was able to fill out a form, choosing what they think should be the competency requirements for the students.

Administrators will narrow it down from there and implement the program this coming school year.
