To our families and community members,
I am honored to work alongside such a phenomenal team of people in Barnwell School District 45 that have accomplished so much over the past few years. We have seen increased academic growth; our students are earning more college credits and industry credentials; the district has increased safety measures across our schools; we have received millions of dollars in instructional and facility grants; our technology department has put over 3,000 new technology devices and pieces of equipment into the hands of our students and teachers; and our district is in a much stronger financial position districtwide while still increasing salaries and modifying salary schedules to benefit our employees.
My goal is that we continue to work toward and accomplish the goals we set forth for our district in an effort to support our students and community, as well as improve the quality of life we all share. I'm very excited about the future of our district and feel grateful we have such a supportive and dedicated school board working toward one common goal - doing what is best for our students. Each year brings another set of opportunities which allow us to become stronger and more successful, and I look forward to that challenge in the upcoming year.
Looking forward to continued success,
Superintendent, Barnwell School District 45
