Superintendent's Message

Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year!  I would like to take the opportunity to welcome everyone back. Even though these are challenging times, we are moving forward together to continue to build a strong foundation based on great teachers and staff, a supportive Board and District staff, and an engaged community. 
As we look ahead to this school year, we stay committed to preparing our students for the potential challenges they may face in their academic journey. To assist them in meeting these challenges, we depend on our excellent teaching staff to continue to raise the bar in their classrooms and build on our District's strong foundation. I am proud of our many accomplishments in our schools, and I look forward to creating more opportunities for our students to be successful.
For the 2022-2023 school year, we are looking forward to getting back on track with educating our students and moving our district from a “B” to an “A”.  While both District and School grades are important, the District is continuing to strive to meet the emotional needs of our students through guidance counselors at all schools, District mental health counselors, and our school psychologist.
On behalf of the Washington County School District, School Board Members, the leadership and administrative team, professional staff, and support staff, I welcome you to join us in preparing your child for their future.  Please do not hesitate to contact us if we can be of assistance to you at any time. 
I have an open-door policy and always invite your comments.
