A Message from the Superintendent
Welcome to the 2013 -2014 academic school year in Hampton County School District Two. This year promises to be an exciting and challenging year as our students return to their respective schools on August 19, 2013.
Our mission: The mission of Hampton County School District 2 is to prepare students to be successful, global learners while maturing as responsible citizens through challenging educational experiences. Our goal, on the other hand, is to do what is paramount for them to remain focused on the educational standards prescribed by the State Department of Education.
Our motto: “Success & Nothing Less”, epitomizes our attitude in regard to the education of our children. We will accept only the best from our students, staff, and administrators; and will celebrate the success of all as we excel to higher heights.
The district’s primary goal of improving overall student achievement will be reached by focusing on the following objectives this year:
- Creating a safe, orderly and supportive environment for teaching and learning;
- Strengthening communication and collaboration with employees, students, parents, and the community;
- Building the capacity of teachers, leaders, and support personnel to produce continuous improvement in student, school, and district performance; and
- Ensuring transparency to maximize the impact of district resources upon student achievement
I envision an extraordinary school year as we advance the state of public education in Hampton County. I am optimistic about the district’s course of progress and look forward to holding everyone accountable, being visible, transparent, and working collaboratively with The Board of Trustees, parents, students, colleagues, and community stakeholders. Our collaborative efforts and family partnerships will ensure that all children are successful and ultimately reach their maximum potential.
We will be implementing several new initiatives throughout the district this year, as well as enhancing those currently in existence. We will also continue to place emphasis on the common core standards and provide the necessary professional development to impart these standards with fidelity.
Finally, it is an honor and privilege for me to serve the children and community of Hampton County School District Two.
