A Superintendent is responsible for effectively leading all functions, operations and
systems processes. Superior interpersonal skills and effective communication are essential to that
success. The urgency of multiple reform efforts currently being implemented within public
education require exceptional leaders committed to systematic change while maintaining
stability and trust across the community. This process requires careful communication, planning
and management, with clarity and consistency of messages across the community that the
community can support and rally around. This entry plan will provide me with avenues to listen
to and interact with both internal and external stakeholders, analyze district data, evaluate
programs and lay the foundation for open lines of communication between all. The goals and
activities of this plan are organized into three categories: Leader of Learning, Leader of Service
and Leader of Change.
