Our community is growing quickly, and our needs are changing. We must continue to partner with leaders in the community to understand those needs to best serve our students. My involvement in our vibrant community goes beyond education. Over the decades I have been a Cub Scout leader, YMCA coach, rotary member, chamber board chairman, Relay for Life chairman, and so much more. These experiences widened my perspective and opened my eyes to our diverse set of needs. As superintendent, I will enhance community partnerships by bringing the representatives of the schools, board, chamber, rotary, county government, sheriff's office, nonprofits, citizens, parents, and local businesses, all together to discuss our school district’s ability to meet our county’s needs.
Additionally, in my time as an adjunct professor for St. Leo University and the University of South Florida I have attended consortiums with invaluable training. The primary focus was how to improve the student progression plan to best prepare our children for life after graduation. It is vital that we improve our communication with parents by creating a standardized way of dispersing information regarding schedules, make-up days, bus transportation, emergency services, state mandates, funding, and course requirements.
