“PUTTING STUDENTS FIRST TODAY FOR A BETTER TOMORROW”.
As Superintendent of Education in two respective school districts in the state of Alabama, I worked collaboratively with the state department of education, elected and appointed school boards, parents, stakeholders, community leaders, politicians, and the like. I successfully accomplished the following in the school systems I served as Superintendent: (1) led a district from deficit spending and state financial intervention to 5 months of operational reserves and release from state intervention, (2) supervised 14 and 25 million dollar budgets successfully, (3) attained 100% highly qualified and professionally certified teachers, (4) facilitated educational summits in keeping parents and the community informed, and simultaneously created parental and community involvement, (5) increased enrollment in the districts I served, (6) worked successfully with stakeholders in providing opportunities for young people in career technical education, higher education, (7) spearheaded and supervised academic and community scholarships in the amounts of 2.8 and 2.0 million dollars respectively,
(8) supervised a graduation rate in the 90 percentile, reduced the dropout rate in one district from 49 to 15%, (9) achieved a very successful career technical education program by having 100% of the programs in Career Tech "Business Industry Certified", (10) achieved AYP District-wide every single year, (11) attained and maintained 2.6 million in grant monies for academics, professional development, innovative and creative extra-curricular activities, (12) successfully initiated and accomplished the first ever accrediting of schools in one district, (13) successfully renewed the accreditation of schools in another school system, (14) supervised 89% and 80% respective rates of students attending higher education in the districts I served, (15) lobbied for and received over $900,000 for the education of students and capital improvements, and (17) led and fostered the passage of a tax referendum for 30 years to keep monies recurring for the education of the students in one district. As a result of these accomplishments minimal disciplinary issues surfaced.
Last but not least, I was blessed to have exemplary evaluatons as Superintendent of Education in the school systems I served.
In summary, I am a person that has and still exhibits a spirit of excellence in education and am extremely proud of the positive impact that I have made in the lives of students, colleagues,stakeholders, and communities throughout the state of Alabama. As a result of these experiences we were very successful in preparing students to be successful productive citizens in society as well as our charge of leaving no child, no parent and no community behind.
