WELCOME INTERIM SUPERINTENDENT
Happy July! I am thrilled to be a part of the Colton School District team and I am excited to serve as the interim Superintendent.
Since 2015, I have been the principal of the Faulconer-Chapman School (K-8) in the Sheridan School District. My additional duties have varied over the years, but I had served as the district's Title 1 coordinator and early learning director most recently. Prior to Sheridan, I was an assistant principal in Lincoln County School District. Before the administration world, I was a high school teacher in three different districts. I have a bachelor's degree in PE and I received his master's degree in Human Services from Concordia University in River Forest, Illinois. My administrative credentials were awarded from George Fox University.
On a personal note, I am starting my 19th year of marriage to my wife Heidi. We have four children that stretch in age from high school to kindergarten.
We would like to share with families and the public, Colton School District expects to fully reopen schools to full-day, four-day, in-person learning this fall. We maintain those expectations in light of the Oregon Department of Education announcement of the Resiliency Framework for the 2021-2022 school year.
There are always many details to opening school in the fall, and this year those details will include things like COVID-19 safety measures. We of course will continue to partner with public health officials and plan to keep families updated as we finalize those details over the summer.
