Welcome to the Office of the Superintendent. On this page, you can access our district publication, the Central Office Crier, as well as other important district resources. Please see the menu below for resources that help to highlight both short and long term plans to increase the academic, behavioral, and social emotional outcomes of all students. Our district strategy provides long range planning to help us realize our district vision which is focused on fostering a growth mindset in all students, eliminating inequities, broadening the meaning of success, and creating environments for innovation.

Each year, the district creates overarching goals to make growth toward the vision, in line with the district strategy. Important updates on district happenings can be found in our monthly edition of the Central Office Crier.

If you have any questions or comments, don’t hesitate to contact me.
