Superintendent Report

May 9, 2018

Superintendent Report May 9, 2018 Finish strong! You’ve all heard me say this time and time again. This is the same message I give every year, this time of year. In the Eagle Point School District, we are committed to a strong finish knowing that every day with our students counts right up until the last day and the last bell. With one short month of school remaining, it is imperative to remember, Every Student, Every Class, Every Day! All of our work, from beginning to end, is designed with the Four Characteristics of Improved School Districts: 1. effective leadership; 2. quality teaching and learning; 3. support for system-wide improvement; and 4. clear and collaborative relationships. In reflecting on the Superintendent’s work for April 2018 highlights were:

  • Portland Job Fair to hire great teachers.
  • Advisory Board and Cabinet joined FFA student proficiency tours.
  • Planning meeting for the End of the Year Awards Celebration. 
  • Hardship transfer request meetings with parents and students. 
  •  Letters of recommendation for students and staff members.
  • Weekly district office stand up meetings.
  • Planning meeting with Apple representative, Steve Nelson.
  • EPHS staff meeting to discuss last quarter graduation plan for seniors.
  • Meeting and mentoring two seniors to get back on track for graduation.
  • Cabinet retreat to plan for finishing strong this year and beginning strong next year.
  • DLT (District Leadership Team) spring get together.
  • Meeting to discuss and analyze attendance data.
  • Pre-termination hearing.
  • Two Way Immersion Program meeting.
  • Graduation Coach meeting at EPHS to discuss my goal.
  • Budget planning meetings.
  • Mentoring aspiring leaders.
  • Thursday site visitations to support teaching and learning.
  • Researching and composing the 2018 Superintendent Budget Message.
  • Meetings with past and present school board members. (1,4) • Leadership/team building development.
  • SOESD Superintendent meeting.
  • Monthly meeting with EPEA (Eagle Point Education Association) representative, Gail Kauffman.

As we focus on the immediate future to FINISH STRONG, we are also looking beyond the official end of the 2017-18 school year. Strategic planning and preparation for next year, including a strong summer school program, will help our students and all of us BEGIN STRONG for the official start of the 2018-19 school year in September.
