Superintendent's Message


Greetings Team Selma and the Selma Community,

Welcome to the 2019-2020 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.  We are excited to share our theme this year: One Team, One Voice: Committed to Excellence.  We look forward to the continued implementation of our five-year strategic plan, A Framework for Excellence.  As part of this, please note our Core Values, with the addition of Equity:

Students First: We put the needs of ALL our scholars first and serve the whole-child.

Excellence: We have high expectations of ourselves and expect to be held accountable to produce exemplary outcomes.

Teamwork: We believe that we are stronger together and that our greatest asset is our collective vision and ability to work collaboratively.

Joy: We believe in our work and will enthusiastically celebrate the success of Team Selma.

Equity: We are intentional about eliminating opportunity gaps and removing barriers to ensure every scholar succeeds.

Integrity:  We do the right thing because it’s the right thing to do.

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 than words could express.  I look forward to working with you as we continue to 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! 

Be Excellent!
