I want to welcome you to the Randolph County School System.  As superintendent, please know that I am very excited about the future of our school system in terms of the opportunities for students, staff members, parents, and the larger community.  Numerous exciting initiatives currently are underway such as our work to increase access to instruction for students, at school and away from campus, through the acquisition of digital resources for our schools. 

Another exciting venture by our school system is our partnership with the Asheboro City School System and Randolph Community College to make Pathways to Prosperity a reality for our students.  This initiative will provide opportunities for students to earn college credit while in high school and acquire credentials in the area of “Advanced Manufacturing.”  It will be exciting to watch the future of this program unfold, especially due to its ability to generate additional partnerships aimed at the provision of great opportunities for our students after high school graduation.

Despite some tough years in terms of the economy, I also have been pleased to watch the school system’s 9-Year Facility Upgrade/Repair Plan become a reality.  The county commissioners’ support of this plan has been greatly appreciated.  As a result, I look forward to the day when the plan’s projects have been completed throughout all parts of the school system.  These efforts will lead to great facilities for our students, staff members, parents, and community members to enjoy for years to come. 

Another important item to note is Goal 2019.  At its meeting on March 16, 2015, the Randolph County Board of Education approved this goal.  It will serve as a “lighthouse” to guide our school system’s actions and plans in all areas over the next few years.  Furthermore, every student’s success will be reflected in our progress towards reaching this goal.  I have a high level of anticipation in terms of the opportunities that our school system’s pursuit of this goal will provide for our students while in grades K-12 as well as the years after high school graduation. 

I hope your time in the Randolph County School System is very enjoyable regardless of whether you are a student, staff member, parent, community member, or visitor to our webpage or a school event.  Our goal as a school system is to continually improve throughout the future with our primary focus remaining on the needs of our students.  We want our students to enjoy their time in our school system and leave with multiple options for their future.  Nonetheless, I can not overlook the great support provided for our school system by our staff members, parents, and community members. Success as a school system can not occur without the help of these individuals.  All of these groups are “special” to the school system and greatly appreciated.
