Greetings IWCS Family-
Welcome to the last week of the 2015 - 2016 School Year! WE have officially made it to the moment that we have worked hard for - but one that I have dreaded for months. Saying farewell is bittersweet for me as I think back over the last four years that I have had the honor of serving as superintendent. I am so proud of the amount of progress that I have witnessed since 2011. WE have certainly come a long way and I owe it all to each of YOU. It is because of the wonderful teachers, staff, administrators, school board members, students, and parents that are genuinely dedicated to this school division that we have been able to accomplish so much in a short amount of time.
WE raised the On-Time Graduation Rate to 93% and surpassed the state average! WE maintained accreditation at all of our schools! WE narrowed the achievement gaps and raised test scores, which allowed US to reap national and state recognition! WE earned the ranking of 15th out of 134 school divisions in Virginia. These accomplishments and continuous improvement efforts reflect the perseverance that has taken place over the last four years. I admire how Isle of Wight County Schools has remained focused on improvement and finding ways to leverage our resources to continue OUR mission of preparing ALL students for educational excellence. Each of YOU took pride in understanding that educating OUR community's most precious resource - OUR CHILDREN.
