Welcome to another new school year! The 2018-2019 school year promises to be a great one. I would like to take this opportunity to say that I am humbled, honored and very excited to be your Superintendent of Schools. I look forward to serving the Purchase Line School District (PLSD) beginning in September. The school board should be commended for the professional and thorough new superintendent search that they conducted. It was very evident during the interview process the passion and dedication they have for PLSD. Further, there is a deep commitment to ensuring that PLSD students are prepared for their future in a very digital and competitive world.
During the interview process, I shared an entry plan that will serve as my transition into the district. The purpose of this listening, learning, and leading plan will be to begin establishing a collaborative and trusting environment. Further, the plan is designed to build relationships with all stakeholders.
I plan to begin the listening and learning sessions in September. I look forward to meeting with everyone to learn as much as possible about PLSD and hear what the hopes and dreams are for preparing our students for their futures.
