Introduction
 During the interview process and subsequent hiring as Superintendent of Education for the Muscogee County School District (MSCD), David Lewis presented the School Board and community at large with a Superinten
dent’s Entry Plan.
 In the plan, he outlined the goals and the activities that would be completed during the first 120 days of his tenure as the primary servant leader of the school district. The main objective of
the plan was to provide the opportunity to initiate a “listening and learning tour” whi
ch would provide first-hand knowledge of the District
’s
 capacity, areas requiring growth, and stakeholder aspirations throughout the school community and community at large.
Phase One: Listening 
Over the past four (4) months since his arrival, Superintendent Lewis has met with students, support staff, teachers, administrators, parents, partner organizations, political leaders, key community stakeholders, and School Board members. In addition, he has attended numerous school and community events throughout Muscogee County and Fort Benning to hear stakeholder input.
Phase Two: Assessing and Planning
As a result of his fifty-eight (58) school/center visits, department meetings, and community appearances, Superintendent Lewis has been able to gather and analyze numerous school, district, state and regional reports, and has studied current research and best practices in order to prepare this report.
Phase Three: Leading
Realizing every organization is perfectly aligned to achieve the results it currently gets, Superintendent Lewis will present an overview of his findings and recommendations going forward to the School Board on January 25, 2014. These recommendations will  provide an overview of how he intends to lead the school district with a deliberate sense of urgency in a bold, transformational change effort which is necessary to achieve its stated mission:
 providing educational experiences that will enable each student to become a lifelong learner, enter the workforce with necessary skills, and achieve academic and personal potential.
The report’s form
at is comprised of overarching areas followed by the D
istrict’s
accolades and attributes, primary challenges and barriers, and recommendations for immediate, near-and long- term initiatives relative to each finding.
The report’s major
findings are categorized as follows:
 
Graduation Rate
 
Learning
 
Equity, Culture, and Context
 
High-Quality Staff
 
Operations
