Superintendent’s Message: A New School Year
The start of a new school year is always interesting, energizing and challenging for all. Not only are parents and students apprehensive about beginning the year – the superintendent, principals, teachers and all employees nervous about how things will go. We all want school to be a pleasant and rewarding experience for all concerned.
We know, however, that there will be mistakes and glitches. The district’s job is to work with you to identify and correct problems as soon as practical, so that the education of the student can take center stage. Each district staff member wants to be helpful and address issues so that student learning can progress. When there are problems, I encourage parents to communicate with personnel at our schools as quickly as practical so that action can be taken to resolve issues.
There is nothing more effective than when the parents and a school system cooperate and work together to solve problems.
Dr. Arthur W. Tate, Superintendent
