It is a pleasure to serve in one of Ohio’s best school districts, the Granville Exempted Village Schools!
My goals include looking beyond test scores and gaining growth in student achievement. Think of it as moving from “good to great,” pushing our students and staff to reach for higher goals, greater knowledge and a deeper commitment to learning.
Granville School District has a rich tradition of high academic standards and rigorous educational opportunities. Our students are at the center of our learning organization, and as a learning organization, our Mission statement professes we are Learning for Life. Our Vision states: “Graduates of the Granville Exempted Village School District are well-prepared and empowered to be thoughtful, productive, and contributing members of their communities, and are equipped with the critical thinking skills and self-sufficiency necessary for success in our ever-changing world.”
At the heart of this theory of action is also a mentality of continuous improvement within the organization. We shift this theory into action by taking our mission and vision and applying strategies and practices to realize the true impact on students. Curiosity about how we educate, and commitment to continuous improvement, lead to changes in classroom practices that align with student needs.
Our district is enhanced by innovative partnerships with parents, community members and local businesses – both in the Granville community and beyond the borders of Licking County. Building these mutually beneficial relationships help us sustain 21st Century learning.
I invite your participation in our schools. Whether you volunteer in our classrooms, attend a student performance or cheer us on at a sporting event, your commitment to our schools is vital to our continuing growth and success. I also welcome your thoughts and suggestions regarding our schools.
Please contact me with your ideas…I look forward to hearing from you.
