On behalf of the Camas School Board and the entire Camas School District staff, it is my sincere pleasure to welcome you to the 2012-2013 school year. On September 4, we look forward to greeting approximately 6,200 students and, in strong Camas tradition, we anticipate another year of academic excellence, accomplishment and high levels of student achievement.
For many years, the Camas School District has enjoyed a much-deserved reputation for excellence. During my seventeen years in the Camas School District, I have had the unique opportunity to serve as an elementary principal, high school principal, and my current position as Superintendent. At all levels, throughout our district, it is obvious that one of the main reasons our students/schools stand above the rest, is the strong community belief that education is a shared responsibility. Here in Camas, the schools, students, families, district staff, School Board, city leaders, and the business community all share in the same commitment: to provide a quality education for each and every student. Studies have consistently linked parental involvement with higher student grades, test scores, and overall achievement. The results in the Camas School District certainly support the fact that the best education occurs when schools, parents, and the community all work together to provide a rich and rewarding educational experience for all students. That work must continue and our vision for students includes a commitment to look at each learner as an individual. We believe it is essential that we provide our students with a meaningful educational experience that allows them to develop the skills and knowledge necessary to be successful in whatever path they choose after graduation.
Parents, we value your input and look forward to continuing our partnership with you. We will do our best and will continue our commitment to provide consistent and effective communication. Continue to visit our web-site at for school updates, district information, and announcements.
I am honored and privileged to serve as your Superintendent. As we begin a new school year, I am confident that in working together, we will continue to accomplish great things. Please feel free to contact me if you have suggestions, questions, or input. I look forward to an exciting and rewarding 2012-2013 school year as we continue to uphold our tradition of caring and quality.
