It is difficult to believe that summer is almost over as we prepare to open our doors for the 2019-2020 school year. It is with immense Patriot pride that I begin my 7th year as your superintendent. One of the things that I believe in as Superintendent is that we have an obligation and a duty as public educators to meet the needs of all our learners, whether they be academic, social or emotional. I believe that as a public institution, we have a duty to prepare students for the world that they enter into upon graduation. This preparation includes academic, technological and social skill sets. I also believe that every student has the opportunity to be successful in his or her chosen field, and that in working together with parents and community members, we can help all students grow and develop toward that goal.
