Weekly Update

June 17, 2017

Once again, I express my gratitude for the warm welcome my wife, Debra, and I have received from the Butler County School System family into the community.  We are very appreciative of those who have made us feel at home already and we look forward to the many friendships we will develop.


     Most weeks of the school year, I will send out a weekly update via email, our webpage and Facebook.  The purpose of the update is to keep those in our school community informed on that which is taking place in our school system.  No question, a key factor to us moving forward successfully, is that we are all on the same page.  This does not mean we will always agree upon everything.  However, we will know the current direction and status of school related initiatives and issues.


     My general format each month will include:

  1. Two weekly bullet-point updates on school initiatives, events and issues.
  2. A press release resulting from our monthly Board of Education meeting.
  3. A monthly “column-type” writing in which I express my philosophy and opinions on a variety of issues.


     I hope you take time to stay informed as we move united as a team in the best interest of our students.  After you read the updates each week, please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. 


     You are also welcome to contact me anytime to talk or set up a meeting.  I also offer to buy lunch for anyone who would like to simply sit down and get to know each other.    


Take care,
