Dear Dixie District Family,
This week I am feeling a great deal of appreciation for California and the many things we take for granted here. Last week I attended the annual convening conference for my doctorate program at Harvard. There, I was able to hear about and discuss educational issues from across the United States. These insights were on my mind throughout this week and I was reminded of how unique we are that we have an equity based formula for schools in our state, that we are committed to shared leadership in our schools through leadership teams and school site councils, and that we are committed to music, arts, and social and emotional learning. I yet again felt very fortunate, and very proud, to be superintendent in this community.
