Superintendent Status: The most recent Board Agenda included the topic of Superintendent Status. The Board took action on May 18 to retain me as Superintendent for the 2015-2016 contract year. It was a 5-0 vote with Director Wilkin absent.
I am proud of the work of our students, families and staff and the effort that goes into the hard work of student achievement each and every day. This is an organization working hard to improve the achievement of our students, and I admire your pursuit of excellence. I am privileged and honored to be part of this team and to serve as Superintendent. I look forward to our continued work together serving the students, families and staff of this district.
