A Message from the Superintendent

Welcome to the 2014-15 school year!
We are very proud of our student’s performance and the work our staff has done to prepare them. As a result, our school has been recognized by Bridge Magazine as Academic State Champions. Bridge Magazine uses a value-added system which measures a school’s test scores that are adjusted for student family income. This adjusted scoring is often a predictor of student achievement.  “Essentially, Bridge’s Academic State Champions are being recognized for over-achievement, rather than achievement”. Each of the buildings also earned a “lime” indicator on the State Report Card.  The State report card’s highest indicator is green, followed by lime, yellow, orange and then red.  Only 6 schools in the State received a green rating last year.  In addition, our high school was recognized as a Reward School on the report card because of their  improved scores on the ACT and MME. The ACT composite score went from 18.6 in 2012-13 to 19.7 in 2013-14, with the state average being 19.8. Congratulations to the students and staff for their excellent efforts!

On June 30, 2014, I submitted my retirement resignation to the Board of Education.  The following is my letter to the Board:

Please accept my retirement resignation as the Superintendent of Manton Consolidated Schools as of December 31, 2014.  Over the last seven years we have worked diligently to do what is best for the students in Manton.  Through many challenges, deficit reduction, declining enrollment, and decreased funding, we have emerged as a fiscally sound school district with an exciting future. I am very proud of our work together with the administration, staff and community!  Manton Consolidated Schools is recognized in the State for its example of school improvement through accreditation in NCA AdvancED.  Our District was recognized by Bridge Magazine as an Academic State Champion and our test scores continue to be at or near the top in WMISD.  We have transitioned our District by providing technology that prepares our students for life.  We have improved our facilities, safety issues and technology.  To be able to lead the District in these, and many other positive achievements, has been professionally and personally fulfilling.  I wish Manton Consolidated Schools and the community of Manton the very best.

I hope you had a relaxing summer break with your children and if you have any questions please contact me at 824-6411 Option 5.
