My priorities

Students First

All decisions, including policy, operational, instructional and programmatic,  must answer the question "is it in line with the strategic plan and meeting the needs of all students?" with a resounding "YES!". 

Watching, Stretching $$$

With a limited budget and a wide diversity of needs, Richland One must spend every dollar in the most efficient and productive way possible.  That means strategizing, analyzing, evaluating and monitoring every aspect of the district functions.

Setting a Vision

As the state capital's school district, Richland One is uniquely located to benefit from and contribute to a rapidly growing region, competing to attract businesses and families.  How does Richland One position itself to become a premier district of choice?
