Mt. Vernon Schools' new superintendent, Dr. Shane Robbins, began his mission of being visible in the buildings by meeting staff at each of the five schools. His contract officially begins July 1, 2015.
Dr. Robbins gave a brief introduction to the staff with his relative history, and shared that he is very approachable. He also said he will be in the school buildings frequently to stay connected with the kids and staff.
Dr. Robbins also shared that decisions will come from him and his staff. He feels he will be proactive in providing resources to the staff, and urged them not to be afraid of change. With the 1:1 initiative (one computer device to one student/staff) on the forefront, this will be the biggest endeavor full of change in the near future.
Please also note there is now a "1:1 Plan" tab on all Mt. Vernon websites which will list the 1:1 developments as they arise. Please check back frequently!
