Superintendent’s Message

Welcome Back 2017-18

On behalf of the ADM Board of Education and all of us at ADM Schools, welcome back to the 2017-18 school year. We have had a great start to our year, and we plan on making this year the best ever!

It is such a great time to be a Tiger. We continue to experience growth in student enrollment and growth in academic achievement, and we will continue to work towards our mission of “engaging ALL students in a challenging and supportive environment that ensures ALL students learn at high levels.”

Our district is currently focused on two major initiatives: Professional Learning Communities and Technology For Learning.

A school district that is focused on being a true “professional learning community”, or PLC, is grounded in three Big Ideas:

  1. A focus on learning.
  2. Building a collaborative culture.
  3. A focus on results.

We believe strongly that our work at both the district and school level around the PLC process will allow us to meet our mission of high levels of learning for all students.

Our second major focus area is Technology For Learning. We are ramping up plans for a major technology device deployment for our students and staff in 2018-19. Our focus this year will be on adult learning around why and how technology can positively influence student learning.

Our website is loaded with information and updates about our schools and district. If you ever have questions about anything, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me or other school personnel. We want to help in any way we can.

It is an honor to be superintendent at ADM. We have a great school district because of our great teachers and staff who come to work each day ready to live out our mission, and because of our supportive parents and community. It really is great to be a Tiger!
