Superintendent's Blog

As many of us are aware, making a resolution for the new year can be problematic because resolutions don’t really “stick.”  These resolutions are an annual ritual that many of us go through in an attempt to affect change in our lives. As a school district, we effect change as part of a cycle of continuous improvement. I discussed this a little bit in a blog post I wrote in 2017.  In that post, I mentioned that the process of change was every bit as important as the outcomes. Looking back, I can say that we have made improvements in all five of our Strategic Focus Areas.

Over the coming months, I’ll be asking our community for feedback (because feedback is an important component of the continuous improvement cycle). Sometime in February, I will be reaching out to engage the community in a ThoughtExchange. The ThoughtExchange platform will allow us to continue to refine our long-range planning and strategic outlook on what we want our schools to provide for our children. Our first ThoughtExchange will focus on communications and engagement.

In anticipation of this upcoming exchange, please reflect on these themes. Rest assured, I am looking forward to hearing more from you about how we can best continue our journey together as a community of learners. Thank you in advance for your continued support and best wishes for 2019!
