Dear Staff, Families, and Community Members,
I am humbled and honored to be stepping into the role of Superintendent of Schools this summer. While the 2022/2023 school year will be my tenth year in the District, it is incredibly important to me to step into this role with an open ear, mind and heart as a means to form an approach to the work ahead in our District. Please enjoy this brief video message as you look forward to the summer ahead.
We are fortunate to have a dynamic Strategic Plan in place, guided by our Portrait of a Graduate. These resources will be vital as I develop an entry plan; however, your input is just as significant. I would greatly appreciate you taking a moment to complete this brief survey, providing me with feedback that will be shared with the Board in the Fall. These questions were formed as the result of anecdotal feedback collected amongst parents, staff, administration and student groups hosted this May and June at all five schools. The questions are meant to reflect an interest in developing a timely, but broad understanding of the dynamics, values and priorities of our district community, especially in the wake of the pandemic. By no means is this survey all-encompassing. It is simply a beginning to what I hope to be deep and dedicated work to elevating our District to its next greatest level. Please complete the survey by August 1, 2022. In the meantime, enjoy a restorative, safe and healthy summer.
Dr. Kelly Tess
