From Melissa Williams-Scott, Ed. D.
Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year. The summer did not just go by fast for teachers…it did for those of us in Technology too. We have installed wifi access in every classroom, updated computers, updated intercom systems on three campuses and cleaned the cooties off of Chromebooks. The best part about staff returning is the excitement in the eyes of even the most seasoned teachers. Classrooms look incredible, teachers have attended hours of professional development and already implemented what you have learned, and we are witnesses to your superpowers. Thank you for trusting us to support you and your students. Wishing you a fantastic school year as you move every student forward…GO GATORS!
