Superintendent’s Message:


Welcome back for the 2022-2023 school year. There is little that is more exciting than seeing and feeling all of the energy of the first day of school. This year as we try to finally get on the other side of COVID, we expect to regain the positive momentum we had before being so abruptly interrupted and enter this year full of positive expectations.


As we start the year, I am serving as Interim Superintendent while the Board of Education does a thorough search for the next superintendent. The title is different, but the mission is the same - to promote academic excellence and enhance the safety, health, intellectual, and social-emotional growth of the whole child for every student every day.


It is especially critical to every student’s success that we work together as a team – administrators, teachers, and parents. Please take the opportunities as they present themselves to get involved and join the team and be a part of the positive changes as we work together to transform our schools.


It is my sincere wish and prayer that your child has the best year at school that they have ever had. It is our commitment to work together with you to make that happen.


God bless you and your family with health, happiness, and academic achievement this school year.


With gratitude,

Dr. Mark R. Potts, Interim Superintendent
