Message from the Conductor - 11-05-2014

I applaud our students, faculty, staff, and community for wanting to take risks to be a successful district.

Dear Railroaders,

Let’s consider the relationship between desire and risk, quitting and change. Have you ever quit something within a year and regretted it? Did you quit because you didn’t have enough patience? How come you didn’t stick it out one more day? Sometimes people quit just as they are about to achieve the outcome they want. People who win go the extra mile, take the extra step, take that calculated risk. There is a direct correlation between risk and success. How can we grow if we don’t take risks? Our faculty is going the extra mile!

When I first began as Superintendent, I can’t begin to tell you how many times I was frustrated with all aspects of the “seat” and wanted to “throw in the towel.” My desire is tested every day with people telling me, “You’ll never get the changes you want up there,” “those kids can’t do it!” My determination has been challenged by the media and by many people from stakeholders to outsiders. Desire comes from within and I have a strong desire to succeed for student achievement, despite the obstacles. Without desire, it would be difficult, if not impossible, to establish the determination to succeed.

We need to be flexible. Flexibility is one of the most important keys to maintaining our determination and leading our students to becoming productive members of society. Staying with realistic goals that can be attained with perseverance is the objective of “NO EXCUSE!” living. Some people quit and never get the “prize!” They may live with regret. Some keep going until they win. Grab hold of a dream and go for it! Our Community dreams for our children!

I believe in our determination to re-do, re-organize and re-build a new capsule for our teachers to deliver quality instruction that digs deep and allows our students to produce quality work.

On Monday November 10, 2014 there will be a Superintendent's Day so that our administration and faculty can work on building a new template that allows time for science labs, 90 minute reading blocks, co-teaching and intervention blocks so that every student is offered opportunity and access and has a built in safety net. This professional development day will allow our professional learning community to grow and prosper. It’s ok to be uncomfortable and make changes it’s not ok to stay status quo!

I want to thank all of you for making our school district the focus of the community! A diploma is an ATM card for life!!

As always please feel free to call me anytime for any reason. We will make this work for every student, I offer NO EXCUSE!

Lastly, if you would like to come and run through your child's schedule, please feel free to contact us at anytime.

Respectfully,
Superintendent Legault
