I would like to thank you for welcoming me and making me feel at home. I have had the opportunity to meet some of you, and I very much look forward to meeting many more of you over the course of the school year.
I have been working to gather information about the district and school communities; establish a strong community presence early on; assess the district’s strengths; identify critical issues; address areas of immediate concern; build upon staff strengths and create a network of contacts and resources that will assist me in my work. One very exciting thing we will share this year is sharing the highlights of all of our seniors in the Superintendent’s Brief. Our focus will be to celebrate every one of our hard-working scholars as they prepare to move on to college or careers at the end of the year. We are certainly husky proud of them all!
We continue to develop a multi-year strategic plan for our District. This will be an opportunity for input from Olean City Schools’ students, staff, families, and community members to focus on future system-wide improvements to improve outcomes for students. Our Strategic Plan is intended to be a working document. The plan will be established to begin in the 2022-2023 school year and will be revisited each year to update district priorities, monitoring our progress regularly throughout the school year. Our Strategic Plan will serve as a guide map to assist us in prioritizing and aligning our efforts and resources to fulfill the district’s mission and vision — providing a student-centered community of excellence in which all members are challenged to learn, achieve, contribute, and innovate. I look forward to embarking on this work with all of you!
I look forward to partnering with the community as we work to make our school district and community the best it can be.
