As a parent of an incoming Barnstable High School sophomore, what I knew as an incoming superintendent was confirmed as a parent – there are amazing educators, staff and programs within Barnstable Public Schools. In particular, the comprehensive programming at Barnstable High School is second to none. Students have an array of academic options, engagement with the arts, and opportunities for positive youth development through athletics, clubs, and other co-curricular activities. Similarly, during the course of my visits to schools over the past few months, a recurring theme within BPS is the unwavering focus on the well being of students. I look forward to working with BPS staff, parents, town officials, and community members to build on the strengths of the district and its schools.
I would like to thank the School Committee and Interim Superintendent Bill Butler for their ongoing support and guidance during my transition to Barnstable. Their support created the opportunity for me to spend ten transition days in the district from March to June in order to listen to and learn from Barnstable educators, parents, and students. In order to build upon the work of 2015-16, we are preparing for our Summer Leadership Institute in August with all BPS administrators where we will develop our collective goals and priorities for the 2016-17 school year. Moreover, and most importantly, we will make plans to welcome more than 5,000 students to a new school year filled with unlimited possibilities!
All the best,
