Good morning everyone,
It is a great day for the School District of Janesville.
I am delighted to participate in this recognition/celebration day. I say that as president and as a proud school board member, parent and spouse.
On behalf of the Board of Education, I would like to extend our heartfelt congratulations and thank you for your efforts that have produced the excellent scorecard results as a district and as individual schools.
I believe that our schools are gems and a marvelous community asset. Yes, we have had some recent struggles and there are more to overcome. We have what it takes – especially our talented faculty and staff – to help our students achieve far greater academic excellence and lead the School District of Janesville to be the very best in the state.
I want to pause a moment to recognize Superintendent Dr. Karen Schulte, I must say that she has honored President Truman’s desk sign “The buck stops here”. Dr. Schulte has led the district during quite a tumultuous time with dignity and excellence while taking on the responsibility to drive academic improvements as laid out in the board’s goals.
Dr. Schulte, I applaud your efforts and the efforts of each and every staff member.
