Superintendent's Welcome

Dear District 181 Community,

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the District 181 website! I am proud to be in my fourth year as Superintendent of District 181, my 31st year working in education, and my 17th year as a public school district superintendent. A few other key numbers come to mind as I think about 2017-18:

  • 3,791 - The number of students we welcome into our doors each day.
  • 596 - The number of part-time and full-time teachers, staff, and administrators committed to their success.
  • 176 - The number of attendance days we have this year. I look forward to each one of them and the possibilities they hold for our learners!

Our focus above all else continues to be the children we have the privilege and honor of serving, and our mission to provide them a premier educational experience. Together with families and the outstanding D181 community, we want to help each of them explore their potential, discover their strengths and passions, and recognize their ability to change the world.

Throughout the year, we will be updating the community on our progress as a District, with information highlighted in each of our four goal areas within the Strategic Plan: Academic Success, Organizational Excellence, Operational Integrity, and Culture of Community.

The successes we experience as a District could not happen without each of us working in collaboration, all in support of our 3,791 young learners.

Thank you for your continued partnership!
