My first day was July 1, 2016 and every day since then has bolstered my first impressions of the communities making up the District –Impressive!

Over the last three months, I have had the privilege of meeting with many District and Community groups regarding the vision for the District going forward.  I have met many caring and concerned citizens, including the Mayor of Castle Rock, Paul Hellenberg, who is ready and willing to assist in transforming Castle Rock into one of the premier School Districts in the state.  We can do it!  However, we need a plan.

We are currently working on our Comprehensive Communication Plan for the District.  This plan will lay out how two-way communications should occur and provide some insight into how District and building decisions are made.  Once approved by the School Board, it will be published for all to see and utilize this month.

Soon, we will be launching our District Strategic Planning process.  This will result in a complete five-year plan for the District which will be updated annually.  The plan may include areas including but not limited to academic progress, staff development and training, District facilitates/resources, technology, communications, safe/healthy environments, etc.  Each large goal area will include specific objectives that will include measurable metrics.

To begin the process, we need to establish a baseline description of where the district is today as perceived by our many stakeholders.  To gather that data, we will hold fifteen to twenty focus groups in October/November.  The schedule for these groups is listed below.  Once the groups are concluded, a detailed summary will be published throughout the district.  It is our hope that each one of you will attend and participate in one of these groups (they will all have the same agenda).

I look forward to meeting each of you as we implement this process.
