Wilton Lyndeborough Cooperative School District provides a safe and educational environment that promotes student exploration, critical thinking, and responsible citizenship.
As I begin my second year as superintendent of the Wilton-Lyndeborough Cooperative School District, I feel excited to be working with a committed staff, talented students, involved families and supportive community members. We will be working collaboratively over the next several years on incremental positive change in a focused, inclusive and thoughtful manner. Our goal is to provide ever expanding and improved learning opportunities for the children from the towns of Wilton and Lyndeborough.
The District wilI be assisted in efforts to improve learning opportunities through the resources being provided by the Department of Education. In August 2014 I, along with four District administrators, attended a three day Summer Summit sponsored by the Department at Keene State College. The Summit was entitled Transformation at the Instructional Core. Summit sessions were both informational and inspirational. The direction that education is taking in the Granite State is one of support for innovation by our teachers, more engaging classroom activities for our students, and increasing individualization of instruction. This link http://www.nhstoryoftransformation.com/ is to a videograph that was recently released by the Department. It provides more information about leadership from the Department with respect to setting the course for positive change in our schools.
This year the Wilton-Lyndeborough Cooperative School Board requested that the Board goals which were adopted in late spring 2014 be incorporated into a “Good to Great” Plan for our schools. This plan brings a focus to the work of the District that will ensure we see progress as a result of our efforts. Curriculum and Instruction, Culture and Climate and Leadership and Service are the three areas in which goals, objectives and action items were developed. As expressed in the plan, I would like our schools to be characterized by a relentless focus on scholarship, the centrality of language, a coherent curriculum, and empowerment of students in a climate of active learning. In addition, our facilities should be inviting, clean, healthy, attractive, safe and secure learning environments where we foster acceptance and respect for all, a sense of duty to self and others, and work to instill value for the educational process among parents and students.
Finally, the plan strives to leverage our small size and strong sense of community to balance rational and cultural connections that guide decisions and expand opportunities for participation and leadership in school activities, protocols and events among staff, students, parents and community. To see the full plan outline with objectives and action items, please activate this link (Good to Great). If you have comments, questions, or suggestions, please send them to email@example.com, as the plan is continuously open to review and revision.
I am grateful to be leading, overseeing and supporting ongoing efforts in our journey from Good to Great. I know our students are up to the challenges and rigor for which our teachers will plan each day of the 2014-2015 school year. Our work is enriched by parent and community involvement. Together we will make our progress toward our goals the next steps in providing the best possible education for our deserving students and communities.
