Welcome to the Howland Local Schools and our website. It is a sincere honor and privilege to serve as Superintendent of the Howland Schools. In our educational community, we take serving and educating children seriously, and our entire school district is committed to fostering the best in each and every child... every day!
We recognize that strong schools are the foundation of a strong community and that communication and collaboration are key elements to making great things happen for kids. We are cognizant of the fact that educating children requires far more than just curricula – it requires a shared vision that introduces new and innovative concepts and strategies that build bridges and partnerships between the school, residents, and businesses. We know that these initiatives often come from ideas outside our schools, and we welcome your input, feedback, and expertise.
We believe in the extraordinary potential of all of our students and are committed to meeting their individual needs. Our efforts require teamwork, dedication, and compassion in every element of our role in educating and serving children. In the coming months, the Howland School District will embark on a methodical strategic planning process. We plan to engage our community in creating a shared vision that will guide us on our journey. We are very proud of the accomplishments of our students and staff, and with the help and support of all stakeholders, look forward to creating a renewed and exciting vision for our schools in our community!
It is our priority that you – our supporters, are actively informed of the status of the school community in which you reside. We intend to maintain a forthright and transparent demeanor that values all stakeholders and welcomes parents/guardians, businesses, and other community entities to share ideas about how we might better serve our students through collaboration and partnerships as we continue to make strides in educating our children as they each develop into fine young adults! I invite you to join our journey of celebrating the excellence of the past and the renewed vision for our future. Your ideas, input, and feedback are always welcomed. Don’t hesitate to contact me or any other school official at 330.856.8200.
