I am thrilled to join the CCSD team and would like to share a video message with you that may help you get to know me a little better and understand my vision for the future of this District.
I am also excited to share my entry plan with you, entitled One Team, One Goal: Making CCSD #1forkids. I have some ideas to start on how to build on the improvements we have seen in the District. My first job, however, is to listen.
In my first week, I met individually with each of the Board of School Trustees and spent time learning from retiring Superintendent Pat Skorkowsky. I also met with the Nevada Legislative Committee on Education and several other elected officials. I visited with students in summer school and had a tour of the new performing arts Magnet program at Del Sol Academy of the Performing Arts. I also held a teacher round table, a round table with support staff, and met with several principals. These are the first of many listening meetings to come. I'm very grateful to all who have taken time to greet me and meet with me in these first days.
I welcome your comments on the entry plan and invite you to join in conversations on social media using #1forkids or #1paralosniños. I look forward to working with you to ensure we have One Team, One Goal: Making CCSD #1forkids.
