Dear Parents and Guardians:

 

This past week I have been working closely with Mr. Sandore so the transition to a new Interim Executive Principal is seamless for students and staff.    I will be on board for the remainder of the school year and I am extremely enthusiastic to be working with the high school student population.      My focus will be on ensuring student success and helping each child meet their potential.   

Over the next few months we will be focusing in on the District Improvement Plan which has six tenents:

  • Curriculum development
  • Social Emotional Learning
  • Communication and effective community and parent engagement
  • Student Learning
  • Systems and Organization
  • Leadership

The staff, students, and administration will work closely on each tenent with Shared Decision-Making Teams at the high school.   Our goal will be to keep all parents informed on progress through our building monthly newsletter which can be accessed on the high school website and available through Peach Jar.   

Having students present every day and fully engaged in their learning will be critical for each child to truly thrive.  I will be meeting with parents of seniors over the next three months to put individualized plans in place for students who may not be on track for graduation.     February to June we will focus on the Juniors to again implement plans to support individual student success.      Keeping students with their class by providing interventions will help to ensure all students are able to graduate on time.  

We will be analyzing our course offerings as we build the schedule for the fall and proposing to increase courses that will lead to college and career readiness.  This effort will involve student surveys and working closely with our Department Chairs through this change process.  

Engaging parents and   community will also be a strong emphasis.   We hope to support Peach Jar consistently and expand our website resources.     We welcome all parents and guardians to be part of our learning team which includes the valuable time that extends beyond the school day.  This can only happen if we provide everyone with the tools they need to support your children.   

 

This year will be productive, positive and most importantly focused on students!   I look forward to supporting your children this school year.

 

Sincerely,

Dr. Kathleen Davis

Interim Executive Principal K-12
