Journey of a Superintendent: American Education Week


“In the United States, every young person deserves access to a world-class education. In classrooms, lecture halls, and laboratories across America, high-quality education helps unlock the limitless potential of our Nation’s students and creates pathways for their success. It prepares them for the jobs of tomorrow and the responsibilities of citizenship. A strong school system bolsters our economy and strengthens our democracy, and it is at the core of the American belief that with hard work, anyone can get ahead. During American Education Week, we celebrate the devoted educators who instruct and inspire students of all ages, and we continue our work to provide every person with the best education possible.”

Well stated, Mr. President!  This proclamation is a clear reminder of just how essential education is to the well-being of each and every citizen.  His message resonates with me, and with my school district.  We are determined provide each and every student access to a world-class education. The most essential ingredients for a world class education are the educators and support staff who work tirelessly each and every day to instruct and inspire our students to reach their dreams.

Join me in celebration of our educators during American Education Week, November 16 – 22, and each and every day of the year.  I invite you to hear directly from staff about why they have are part of KCKPS.

It’s Up to Us!
