Interim Superintendent of Schools



Dear Saginaw Public School Families,

 

Each year we are given a chance for a new beginning. As we focus on the 2014-15 school year, I am excited and humbled to be given the opportunity to return to the District, as its leader, where we will continue to work with students, staff, parents and the community thus building a stronger Saginaw. Our approach will be collaborative when working with our various stakeholder groups while promoting accessibility, visibility, relationships and providing exemplary customer service which sits at the core of our commitment to you. We remain focused on the work and will partner with you and others, including the Board of Education, to continue to move the district forward.

 

Our focus remains on designing an educational structure that supports our children from birth to college/career preparedness allowing for all students to receive an optimal educational experience. That said, we know the arts and related areas are essential to the tapestry of the whole child allowing for creativity which make the impossible, possible. Our commitment to student learning is huge and engaging our community and business partners for the purpose of increased student achievement has never been more important.  The relationship between schools, our communities and business partners is reciprocal and fostering support, trust and partnership is paramount.

We know we will be judged not for the obstacles and hardships encountered, but for our resilience and ability to come back stronger than before. With so many talented students, teachers, administrators, staff, parents, community members and business partners, there is no doubt that this year will be even better than before. This confidence stems from our team effort and approach, which emphasizes the importance of everyone working together to attain our goal of maximizing achievement for every student.

 

Know that we are committed to being “all in” for our students and we hope that you are as well.  We look forward to working together with you this year and thank you for your continued dedication and commitment to our entire school community.

Kindest Regards,


Kelley A. Peatross, Ph.D.
