• As Superintendent of the Wake County Public School System, I work every day to ensure that every student in Wake County receives a high quality education.

    The efforts of our entire staff are focused on addressing the needs of all our students by providing learning environments where children are able to thrive. We work to provide an education that prepares students to be successful when they graduate and gives them the foundation to live healthy and productive lives.

    The district has developed a strategic plan that provides a roadmap for growing the Wake County Public School System into an exemplary district that educates every student to the highest quality.

    As we reach this goal together - teachers, parents, students and community partners - I genuinely appreciate your feedback and participation.

    Thank you for your partnership as we continually strive for educational excellence.
