Celebrating 2020-21, Looking Forward to 2021-22 & Beyond
Hello La Conner School District,
I am excited that you have chosen me to lead the La Conner School District as your new Superintendent. I have had the opportunity to meet many of you during the Superintendent Search, my Pre-Entry, and Entry Planning meetings. I have heard so many wonderful celebrations about the La Conner School District. I have been in awe listening to how persistent and resilient you have all been this year as you've worked through the changes and challenges of COVID-19 alongside Rich Stewart. What an amazing leader! He has truly brought you all together and made such great progress as a system, including passing a levy with over 71 percent of voters voting yes for the La Conner School District. He has led the district together with your hard work and efforts to create systems that would allow all of you and the community to persist through the pandemic. I hope that we will keep the truly innovative and creative solutions that enhance the experiences of our students and their families going into the future.
I'm excited to roll up my sleeves and begin working alongside you developing programs and practices that lead to improved student achievement for every student, eliminating the disparities between performance across racial and programmatic lines, and engaging in the hard and heart work necessary to move forward. Each and every one of you has an important role in supporting and caring for our students and their families. This is a team to be proud of and I'm so very happy to be here with all of you, working alongside you, and looking forward to the possibilities and potentialities of the 2021-22 school year and beyond. Thank you for the warm welcome. I hope each of you has time during the summer months to relax, rejuvenate and recharge. I’ll be available during the summer if you want to stop by the district office and chat.
Will Nelson, Superintendent
