I am loving the goals that Dr. Wiegand has layed out for her role – as she said, they are very ambitious indeed. Which is good. She has set before herself and the entire District a worthy challenge. You can read her statement here:
My next question to Dr. Wiegand will be “how?”. What metrics will be used to measure our progress? What steps will we take, and how will we know when we have reached a milestone? Are these goals open-ended, or are we to meet them within the next, say, 5 years?
Dr. Wiegand does say in her letter the following:
As your Superintendent, I look forward to building a team to lead this District to the next level. As this team comes together, action steps to achieve these goals and objects will be formalized and shared by the start of the coming school year.
So this initial letter sounds like the planning stages with the promise of more to come. Awesome! I am excited!
