Meet the Principal
It is with great pleasure to introduce myself as your new Director of Secondary Education. My name is Kara Backman and this will be my 17th year in the education field, working as a teacher, administrator and education consultant. My husband, James and I have three amazing children, Kade, Kash and Jacee. Kade will be attending DECA in August as a Kindergartener in the bilingual program. My family is deeply rooted in the Denair community where both my husband and sister in-law graduated. The land where our family owned pig farm resides is the property in which my husband’s grandfather homesteaded. I am firmly passionate about youth first, giving back to your community and purposefully growing your mindset through life-altering relationships.
· Our first community gathering will be Coyote Call on August 4th from 8:00-1:00 in the gym. Come prepared with opportunities to learn and ask questions!
· 9th grade Orientation will be August 10 at 5:00 in the theater. We will have a tour of the school, play games and eat dinner.
· First day of school August 11 beginning at 8:00
New Cell Phone Policy
Per student and family request, we have adjusted the cell phone policy. I hope that this appeals to 100% of our student body. Please take a few moments to read the enclosed policy and partner with us to reinforce this new policy with your child.
Thank you for giving me this opportunity of partnership. I am excited about the year ahead of us.
Kara E. Backman
Director of Secondary Education
Denair High School
“Student Password Changes
All returning students’ passwords have been updated from seven characters to eight characters, by placing the number “9” in front of your existing password. For example, a student who previously had a password of 1234567, would now have a password of 91234567. Students new to the District for the 2016-17 school year, already have eight character passwords.”
