Greetings Team Selma and the
Welcome to the 2018-2019
school year! I hope you share my
excitement and enthusiasm as we begin the year with another opportunity to
serve the children and families of the Selma community. Throughout this school year excellence will
be the resounding theme and expectation. This is seen throughout our new 5-year strategic plan, A Framework for
Excellence. As you review and become
familiar with this plan, take note of our revised Core Values that will guide
- Students First
Let’s work together as a school district and community to define and demonstrate these core values in our actions. As parents and educators in our district, it is imperative that we exemplify each of these values in your daily interactions. We must keep students first in our decision-making. Partnering with families, teamwork will be the core of how you do school each day by involving students, teachers, and the community. Every task should be done with excellence because our students deserve high quality instruction and teachers and leaders who care and support them for improved outcomes. I love that joy is now one of our core values. Love what you do and be willing to show that joy every day! Finally, we must commit to model integrity by being ethical and fair in our interactions with every stakeholder.
Parents, thank you for the
opportunity to serve as your superintendent. I am truly honored and blessed to be a part of the Selma community. The trust that you place in us to care for your
children means more that words. I look
forward to working with you as we move our district to a level of
excellence. Please know that my door is
always open and that I value you voice. We are stronger together!
Avis Williams, Ed.D.
