ANNUAL REPORT

We are exceptionally proud of the publication of our 2021 Annual Report because it highlights the numerous supports we had in place during the COVID-19 global pandemic.

In June of 2018, the Board of Education adopted a strategic plan with the involvement and engagement of staff, students, parents, community members and business leaders.

#62UNITED

I am very optimistic about this school year. I intend to be present and available throughout the district, connecting with students and families. Understanding what is happening in our schools, buildings and throughout the district will be one of my priorities this year as it aligns with my focus on developing relationships with families and community.
