As the superintendent of Clermont Northeastern Schools, I am thrilled to begin what I anticipate will be an exciting and productive school year. Starting a new school year is an opportunity for families to support students in their quest for a quality education. Without a doubt, the success of any school district takes the dedication of our exceptional staff, informed parents, and involved community members to create the best possible environment for learning. Our students deserve nothing less.

CNE continues to maintain its long-standing tradition of excellence, and in recent weeks I have seen evidence to that effect. Our district has been recognized at the state and local level in several areas. We are very proud of the accomplishments of our students and staff.

Our courses of study reflect our community’s aspirations of our children and our schools work diligently to ensure that classroom instruction reflects best practices. Our record of academic improvement is steadily growing in the right direction.

Our record of accomplishment is represented in the academic, performing arts, and athletic achievements of our students, including wonderful music performances, theatrical productions, and creative science and art displays. Our students also enthusiastically participate in a wide array of athletics, clubs, activities and special events which are offered almost daily throughout the school year.

I am eager to begin our work together in building upon both the strong educational foundation and rich history and traditions that characterize our school system.

Good communication and community engagement are hallmarks of high quality schools, and I look forward to seeing you at various school and community events.

I am honored to serve as your Superintendent of Schools. I look forward to greeting our students on opening day. I wish you all a healthy, productive and rewarding school year.
