Superintendent’s Message 2017-18
End of the School Year Message -
A demanding but productive school year is drawing to a close.  Before we breathe a huge sigh of relief and launch into summer break, it is fitting to take a moment or two to reflect on how far we have come and where we are headed.

First, I want to recognize each of you for the dedication, talent, energy and care you bring to your work.  Together, we are making a visible difference for our students, families and community.

This year we set our sights on some challenging Board goals in the areas of staff capacity building, student achievement and college and career readiness, resource management, and community engagement.  We have focused on what matters most - ensuring our students are learning and that we continue to grow as a staff and district.

Over the past year, we worked toward implementing the State Standards, enhancing performance on state assessments, increasing graduation rates as well as implementing a number of other initiatives to better serve students needing additional support.

We continued to focus on building the capacity of our staff.

To better engage our external stakeholders, we worked to build stronger communications with legislators, key state educational leaders, community leaders and others to advocate for legislation in support of strategies to increase student achievement and sustainable funding for schools.  

Across the district, we've worked on improving efficiency and reducing costs.  We now have resources to fund the purchase of new instructional materials and improve technology across all schools.

These accomplishments reflect the dedication, perseverance and collaboration of staff throughout the district.  You could add many more achievements worthy of celebration in each of our schools and departments.  This year has seen improvements initiated at every school by creative teachers, administrators and staff.

Educating our children for a successful future is important and influential work.  I want to recognize your daily contributions in providing the richest experience possible for our students.  Despite the constraints and challenges caused by our financial situation, we continue to focus on improvements and we continue to find ways to leverage our resources - people, time, dollars and relationships - toward boosting success for students and creating the system of strong and excellent schools of which our community is justifiably proud.

In ways large and small, each of you has made a positive difference for kids this year.  If I haven't had an occasion to express this to you in person, please know that I deeply value your efforts and your commitment.  I hope you have an opportunity to rest and re-energize over the summer.  Take time to travel, pursue a hobby, enjoy the company of friends and family, and savor the experiences that are rewarding and help you bring new insights to your role.  For those of you who are retiring after serving the district for so many years, I wish you the best.  You have contributed immensely to the success of our district.  I hope you have great enjoyment in this next phase of your life.

With appreciation and sincere admiration.
