Gothard looks forward to meeting a wide variety of people and learning what opportunities and approaches they want to see to support the district's mission of "Each Student Real-World Ready."
"This is the listening and learning phase of my first year with the district," said Gothard. "The information that people have been sharing with me has been valuable as I get to know this wonderful school district. I appreciate the conversations I have been having and look forward to meeting more people during upcoming Community Days."
Input gathered during Community Days will shape future leadership decisions and the direction of the school district, said Gothard, who feels strongly that many voices build a powerful community.
In addition to the evening events, Gothard will be visiting every school as well as other specialized programs in the district and community education. He will take tours, view classrooms, meet with students and talk with staff members.
