On behalf of our faculty and staff, I would like to welcome all of our new and returning families to the 2019-2020 school year. We are honored that you have entrusted Dove Schools with the tremendous task of educating your children. Throughout the summer, Administrators, Central Office Staff and I, as well as Department Heads and Teachers, have been involved in fine-tuning and finalizing plans for the new school year. We continually work on making Dove Schools the best place for your students to learn.
Last year at this time, many could not have imagined that Dove Schools would have additional campuses any time soon. Yet, today I am proud to say that after meticulous planning and hard work, Dove Schools in Tulsa and Oklahoma City have welcomed two new campuses to the family. This brings us to a total of seven Dove Schools campuses in the State of Oklahoma! We are excited about being able to serve even more students in the Tulsa and Oklahoma City area.
I am thankful for the fact that we will be able to start the school year with a brand-new written curriculum. The written curriculum includes new textbooks for our students, as well as district-aligned plans for our faculty. This process did not just start in the Summer. It is the culmination of the work of a team of teachers and administrators, involving countless hours of research, data collection, planning, development, evaluation, design, and meetings that started in the previous school year. I thank our hard-working Faculty, Staff and School Board for their professional and personal commitment in continuing to provide the students at Dove Schools with an outstanding place for learning.
At Dove Schools, we are committed to providing our students with a great academic program. However, even more so, we are dedicated to providing our students and their families with a place where they can develop character. As we start the new school year, I encourage our entire DOVE community to engage in our core values: Disciplined, Organized, Vigorous, Education.
It is an honor to serve as Superintendent of Dove Schools. I look forward to continuing to partner with you in our common goal to provide our students with a quality education. Together, we can make the 2019-2020 school year a time of positive growth in every area.
