“When I became Superintendent of the Gary Community School Corporation, I pledged to be open and accountable to every individual in the public school community.”
Together, we’ve managed a wide variety of issues, ranging from simple transportation routes to complex student needs. As a result, I’ve never been more hopeful that our efforts to tackle the greatest matter, attracting the best and brightest teachers, will be solved by our ability to develop innovative partnerships and resolutions.
