"Meet the Superintendent" Sessions...a Success!

Dr. Horton, Central Office staff, and school administrators hosted a MEET THE SUPERINTENDENT session at every school during the last five weeks to gather information from parents and community. The four questions What is working?, What are your ideas or suggestions for improvement?, What are your dreams for the future?, and What can I do? were posed to each audience and the similarities were astonishing.

The meetings varied in size, but no matter how many were in attendance, the concern for the students and the schools was apparent.

So what is next? The data gathered at the meetings is being studied to determine the priority of needs, things that can be accomplished easily, and how we can make the dreams that were shared a reality.

The question, "What is working?" generated many positive comments about our district. We truly have a lot in which to be proud and need to remember that promoting our district is everyone's business.

As we approach the season of Thanksgiving, I am thankful for a superintendent who values the input of parents, the community, system employees, and most importantly the students, when it comes to making decisions. We are also most fortunate to have a School Board with the wisdom to make such a fine selection for our new leader.

Thanks to all who participated in the sessions. You are helping to make a difference in the lives of children and MOVING OUR DISTRICT FORWARD!
