Dear Parents, Guardians, and Friends,
It is an honor to serve the WCSD community. I continue my commitment to harnessing the collective energy and talent at WCSD to ensure that every student achieves at the highest level.
We will maintain our focus on preparing students to be college and career ready. Evidence from recently released standardized testing indicates that 88% of our K-12 students are NOT exceeding the standard. As Superintendent, I must make decisive decisions that encompass the district and that are based on data. I cannot arbitrarily make a decision based on interpretation or emotions.
An encounter with the brutal facts is the surest, fastest path to creating the best schools. The changes that will have the most impact on student learning require only that we stay focused on what it is we want to achieve!
THE NUMBER #1 FACTOR IN STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT IS THE TEACHER. Continuous, common sense efforts to conform to effective practice and essential standards will make life-changing differences for students across all socio-economic levels. As we move toward a block schedule which provides increased academic time that allows instruction and learning to dig deeper not wider we will be able to increase student achievement! The instructional leader of the building will drive, monitor and offer feedback to our faculty and staff as they actively participate in the quality of instruction on a daily basis. We will offer the student body a personalized learning environment everyday…and that is our promise to you!
I cordially invite you to be involved in the conversation and continue to design the “new” WCSD into becoming a student centered/teacher focused district.
We have so many great things happening at WCSD. Please be part of the solution and always look at our glass as half full and not half empty!!!
