Dear District Family,
Although we aren't able to gather physically for this year's Convocation, we want to welcome all of our teachers/staff back to the new school year. This year in lieu of our normal convocation and as a testament to the virtual world we now live in, instead of inviting a lot of district leaders to give you speech upon speech about how to be motivated during these unprecedented times we've tapped into some other experts. Please enjoy the short video that follows, as our experts, aka “scholars” from our District schools have joined us to share how they feel about virtual learning, their feelings about our current circumstances, and some of their hopes for the year.
Please know that we appreciate you. We're so happy that you are back and our community is very excited to see all the advancements that we've made during the summer.
Dr. Ronald G. Taylor, Superintendent of Schools
