Message From The Superintendent
Interim Superintendent Jonathan Jett
Over the past few weeks central office along with KDE staff have worked to ensure Perry County Schools’ focus is where it needs to be. During this time we have developed new Mission, Vision and Belief Statements. We greatly appreciate the valuable input we received from all stakeholders. Our district leadership team has worked on individual job descriptions to ensure everyone understands their specific roles and responsibilities. This work will continue throughout the district and eventually we will have students develop and understand what their roles are in the education system. We are also looking at our district communication plan. I want to ensure that we are the ones that are telling our story. Sometimes if we do not make it clear to the community and all stakeholders people get the wrong information. This makes it difficult for community members to understand the work that is really taking place at the district level. As Interim Superintendent I want to be transparent in everything we do in our district. Also, in order for us to be successful we must have shared accountability that starts with the board and myself and includes everyone to the students and their parents. I appreciate your dedication to the students of our district. Together we will provide students the education they deserve throughout our district which will provide all students the opportunity to be college/career ready upon completion of high school.
The Perry County School district will promote a positive culture void of ex-cuses through effective communication.
All stakeholders (i.e. board members, central office staff, school administrators, teachers, students, community members and parents) will work within clearly defined, transparent, roles/job descriptions resulting in sustainable systematic action plans.
Pertinent data must be produced by any stakeholder requesting resources, and resources must be continually monitored for effectiveness through data analysis.
All Perry County students will internalize their goals/benchmarks and co-lead a curriculum that prepares them for the next level.
Within our educational community, each member will hold other members and themselves accountable and will not experience an environment where fear serves as a barrier to success.
Perry County students raising the standard for lifelong learning.
The vision of Perry County Schools is to ensure student success, as measured by college and career readiness, through the building and sustaining of appropriate systems for continuous academic achievement and lifelong endeavors.
