Message from our Superintendent

Superintendent Nason Tony Authement

Welcome back to the start of the 2018-2019 school year. Our district’s vision and the reason that our school system exists is to prepare our students for success. For the vast majority of those students, that success will ultimately be defined in the workplace. So, we must create learning environments that provide opportunities for students to develop the skills that they are going to need to be successful.

Recent studies found that besides being proficient in core academic areas there is and will be a greater demand for employees with a different set of work skills in the emerging 21st century workplace. The ability to communicate effectively, to work collaboratively as part of a team, being creative and innovative, the ability to think critically, and the ability to solve complex problems are the key skills that will be needed for students to be successful in the workplace.
