Superintendents Vision 2020-21 School Year

Dr Roberts at Belle Valley Elementary

Greetings and welcome to the 2020-2021 school year.

This is certainly an unprecedented school year, we are navigating uncertain times, and dealing with daily changes. What remains constant is my commitment and that of every adult who works in the Millcreek Township School District to provide world-class educational opportunities to 100% of our students. Our commitment is to do so in an environment that prioritizes the health, safety, and wellbeing of ALL of the students who knock on our doors, and for every adult who serve them. Millcreek Family, a time that is unprecedented requires approaches to teaching, leading, and service that are also unprecedented. It is incumbent on us to use this unprecedented space to explore opportunities that truly meet the needs of every stakeholder.

During this school year, you will see my leadership, as well as our team's focus anchored in an approach that emphasizes an empathetic, compassionate, and culturally responsive orientation as we:

ERADICATE, INNOVATE, DIFFERENTIATE, and CREATE:

  • Eradicate the practices and mental models that will not reach and serve ALL students.
  • Innovate our daily instructional and operational practices for excellence.
  • Differentiate our approaches to teaching, leading, assessing, and operating.
  • Create new structures, systems, and strategies that prioritize communication, socio-emotional learning (SEL) for students and adults, and opportunities for all to thrive.

This school year we will have a relentless focus on ensuring an exemplary educational delivery model for students, highlight a continued spirit of collaboration with parents and members of the community, and always remain committed to the district’s mission and Core Beliefs. I am honored and feel immense gratitude for your vote of confidence to invite me to lead and serve this district and community. I will strive to celebrate each of you, and consistently remind you of the reasons for which we were called to serve for such a time as this. Thank you for your continued support, partnership, and spirit of collaboration as purveyors of exemplary education.
