Welcome back to school!
What a great first day of school! I was particularly proud that 94 percent of bus routes ran on time, and we opened six new elementary schools and two replacement schools that were in great shape and ready to serve students. I want to share a video with you of comments I made a few weeks ago to our kickoff of administrators and teacher leaders. It's a fun look at our reorganization efforts and the progress we've made. Throughout this year let's remember that we might face some difficult challenges but, working together, we can ensure the success of every student in every classroom without exceptions, without excuses. I hope you enjoy the video and have a fantastic first week of school!
