What's best for students? This question is easy to answer: Utilize the resources of the district to provide our students with the best opportunity to succeed in post secondary life opportunities.
The question not so easy to answer is how we utilize those resources to achieve this goal. That is the challenge and direct responsibility of the Board of Education and superintendent. The roles are clear. The BOE sets the vision of the district and the superintendent implements the necessary strategies to fulfill that vision.
It is easy at times, however, to allow the process of how to fulfill the vision to take precedence over the pursuit and attainment of that goal.
