Dear Kalispell Public Schools Community,
It is truly an honor and privilege to serve as Superintendent for Kalispell Public Schools. I am grateful to be entrusted with the position and committed to leading our district with all my heart. Together we have navigated many challenges over the last two years, but it has been inspiring to see the KPS community working together in support of our students. I am sincerely grateful for the commitment, resilience, and grace demonstrated by our district staff, students, and families. Thank you!
KPS prioritizes bringing our schools, families, and community together through building relationships, respect, and common goals that support education. Throughout the last year, our Board of Trustees worked diligently with leadership teams, staff members and the community to develop a purposeful and thorough plan for the future of our district. The KPS Strategic Plan outlines our priority goals and action steps in providing the best possible education for our students. Highlights include:
- developing transformational learning opportunities,
- fostering safe and supportive learning environments,
- building career pathways and advanced learning opportunities, and
- continuing support of social, emotional, and mental well-being.
Additionally, we aim to increase family and community participation relative to all our strategic goals. My sincere aspiration for our schools is that we are a community in which we genuinely care for and respect one another and always prioritize our students.
The future of KPS is bright! We look forward to an amazing 2022-2023 school year. I am appreciative of our community and the opportunity we share to serve our students and families. My door is open. I will always take time to listen and talk with you in support of our students. Thank you for your ongoing support of Kalispell Public Schools!
