Superintendent's Message
Dr. Glenn Faircloth, Superintendent

During this season and every day, I am very grateful for the opportunity to serve as your Superintendent. I am also grateful for your support of Issue 26 on the November 8 ballot. As you know, it renews the current 0.75 mill levy and will not increase taxes for homeowners. Together, we are making a difference in the lives of our students as they reach their highest potential in school and the workforce.
