Welcome to the 2018-19 school year! As we look forward to the new school year, we will continue our focus on the three strategic initiatives that have been the cornerstones for the work of the district for the past few years. The three initiatives essentially keep us focused on what is important to meet the mission of every student learning, growing and succeeding and our vision of being an extraordinary district by working together. Our three focus areas center on student learning and engagement (We're Personal); effective programs and services to meet student needs (We're Comprehensive); and sound stewardship of resources (We're Responsive).
The administrative team and I, along with building leadership teams, fine tune action plans to help bring these focus areas to fruition. Highlights of our work this year will be our innovation zone projects; implementation of our Portrait of a Graduate plan that ties back to our Most Likely to Succeed work; conducting community demographics and long-term facility studies; and planning for long-term financial stability.
Across the district, from bus drivers to custodians, food service associates to administrative support professionals, principals to teachers, we are all committed to making sure our students are on the pathway to success. We are ready to work collaboratively to ensure that each child in our district receives the best education possible. I look forward to working with you to help us realize this vision for our students.
Here's to a great school year!
Julie Critz, Superintendent
