As summer break draws to a close, I want to remind you to make the most of the last three weeks before the new academic year begins. These weeks offer a wonderful opportunity to create lasting memories, explore new adventures, and relax before the hustle and bustle of the school year.

Embrace the freedom of these final days, spend time with family and friends, and indulge in activities that bring you joy. Whether it's a day at the beach, camping in the wilderness, or simply reading your favorite book under a shady tree, savor every moment.

Remember that the experiences you have during these weeks can enrich your life and help you approach the upcoming year with renewed energy and enthusiasm. So, seize the day, cherish the sunshine, and make the most of these precious moments. Have a fantastic time, and I look forward to welcoming you back for another exciting academic year!

Enjoy the rest of your summer break! Go, Knights!

Dr. Joe Clark
What Does a Superintendent Do?
It's been said of a school district's organizational structure that if the school board decides it wants to make a pie, the superintendent decides what type of pie to make, and the staff does the actual baking.  Ultimately, a superintendent is responsible for the day-to-day operations of all of the personnel and facilities in a school district.  

The duties of a superintendent can be categorized under five different areas:

1. Vision, Continuous Improvement, and Focus of District Work
2. Communication and Collaboration
3. Policies and Governance
4. Instruction
5. Resources

The Department of Education and the State Board of Education have adopted specific roles and responsibilities for superintendents in Ohio. You can find those standards by clicking HERE.
