As superintendent, it’s my honor to welcome you to the 2016-2017 school year. I am excited about where we are going as a school district. This school year, we will begin to operate as a Charter School System. The Charter will provide us with the flexibility to implement innovative programs to meet the needs of our diverse student population. It will also allow us to continue the work of challenging our students to reach new levels of achievement. Our teachers and staff are ready and eager to work in collaboration with our stakeholders to lead Baldwin County Schools to new heights.
Over the past two years, we’ve seen many improvements in our school district. I am very proud of the increase in our graduation rate from 66.6% to 79.8% and the number of college credits, over 1100, earned by our students.
While we still have work to do, we are making progress.
While we strive for excellence for all of our students, we must continue to keep a focus on our mission that all of our students graduate from high school, have college and career options, and become contributing members to our community and global society. It is my honor and privilege to serve the children, staff, families, and citizens of Baldwin County as its Superintendent. Thank you for your continued support and for your willingness to work with us to toward our goal of becoming a world-class school system. It’s going to be a great year!
