I am often asked what I do all summer, and many think that I get the same summer vacation that our teachers and students have. I actually have a twelve month job and in the summer time there are many things to do. We are:
- hiring for any vacancies that exist;
- entering into new contracts with vendors for services that are provided throughout the year;
- pouring through student data to see student performance in all our subjects;
- organizing professional development for staff;
- putting the finishing touches on a Capital Project that will provide updates to all of our buildings; and
- getting ready for the opening day of school.
- retro fitting some classrooms for full-day kindergarten;
- rearranging bus routes for redistricting and interaction time; and
- re-developing menus in food service.
I will be taking a few days next week though to go on our "last" family vacation before our oldest heads off to college. Never thought I would say that, but then again I never thought I would type about the time I waded through waist deep water to get to my house either!
Enjoy and I will post again in a couple of weeks.
