A warm welcome to our students and families as we enter the 2017-2018 school year. Our schools, the heartbeat of our community are ready to go! This summer, we worked hard to prepare for a great school year. Our staff is eager to care for, support, and challenge each student to pursue excellence. Each school year brings anticipaton, excitement, and with much anxiety of what the new possibilities may bring. As we begin this school year, I wish the greatest success for all our students.
Also, please join me in welcoming all the new members of our team. We are excited to have them on board and look forward to working with these fine individuals. Whether you are driving a school bus, maintaining one of our many facilities, providing outreach to parents, teaching in a classroom, working in an administrative role, or serving in any one of the many other important capacities in this district, you are integral to ensuring that our schools are highly effective centers of learning. I want to highlight the following priorities as critical to our continued success:
Teaching and Learning
We will continue to focus on our vision of providing a quality education for all students and to become an A-rated district with all A-rated schools through leadership, collaboration, and innovation.
I am thankful that we have such a talented and dedicated staff. North Panola School District is a wonderful place to be and I appreciate you choosing to work in this district. As you all prepare for the start of the school year, we hope you can feel the excitement in the air. Once again, welcome! I look forward to seeing you at our schools.
Cedric L. Richardson, Superintendent
Vision: To become an A-rated district with all A-rated schools.
