During my time as superintendent, I will intentionally listen and boldly act. I will also remain laser-focused on the needs of our students and teachers while working collaboratively with our community. I remain extremely grateful for the opportunity to serve our District during this time. Being a product of this District makes this opportunity personal, and I am determined to ensure that we strengthen our District for our students, families, employees, and community.
Our mission at MSCS is to prepare all students for success in learning, leadership and life. In order to prepare them for ethical leadership we must model it. Accountability and efficient structures are critical to creating trust. We must make the changes necessary to provide the best possible education and services for students. I have outlined some of those changes in the sections that follow. Many of the items discuss operations matters that I addressed immediately to ensure the interest and integrity of the District; however, a comprehensive review of academics is underway.
Our District has been through a lot lately, which is a testament to our resilience. Transitions are never easy, but they are a necessary part of effective organizational change, and I am committed to pivoting toward progress. As we work together to continue our culture and climate reset at Central Office and districtwide, I am committed to guiding the process with integrity and community input. With your help, we will emerge from this reset stronger.
We will continue with our upward momentum, but I want to caution that progress is rarely a straight line. There will be dips and curves along the way. Even when we momentarily lose our footing, we must never lose our focus. Doing what’s best for children will always be my North Star; this is my vow.
As long as I have the honor of serving as your superintendent, I am focused on increasing student success, efficiency, collaboration, and trust so that as we continue trending up, together, we’ll ALL be lifted up.
