“As the newly elected superintendent of Clay County Public Schools, I am honored, humbled, and inspired by the incredible responsibility charged to me in leading this great system and improving teaching and learning,” Superintendent Davis said. “I will dedicate my efforts to raise academic experiences for all students, and create a climate and culture that fosters collaboration, transparency, and a child-centric environment.”
The actions Superintendent Davis proposes to take are organized according to six goals laid out in the plan:
- Enhance the relationship between the School Board and the Superintendent.
- Improve the instructional framework, processes, and structures that enrich student achievement.
- Establish a positive climate and culture throughout the organization.
- Create a performance management system.
- Strengthen community, public, and teacher relationships.
- Ensure effective management of the organization, operations, and facilities to maximize the use of resources and promote a safe, efficient, and effective learning environment for Clay County students.
In the process of implementing this transition plan, the superintendent also identifies expected outcomes:
- A comprehensive report describing key findings, observations, and feedback from all stakeholder groups.
- The opportunity to transform key findings into a thoughtful four-year strategic plan linked to improving student achievement through targeted initiatives, projects, and an organizational structure designed to achieve those targets.
- The creation of a shared vision and common focus for the entire school community, with a deeper understanding of the mission for Clay County Public Schools.
The plan will remain available on the district website at oneclay.net, and updated as action items are accomplished.
Superintendent Davis will also host a series of public meetings to share the plan directly with residents, and engage in discussions so he can better understand the needs of the community and identify next steps for the district.
