Dear FTIS Students, Families, and Staff,
What a wonderful time to be part of the Fort Thomas Independent School District! Built upon a foundation of generational excellence, our students, families, community, faculty and staff are working together to provide one-of-a-kind opportunities for our students. Last year our students and staff continued to demonstrate excellence in the classroom, on the stage, athletic fields, and were recognized as champions and leaders throughout the Commonwealth. We are Rich in Tradition, Focused on the Future and I am truly honored to have the opportunity to serve as your superintendent.
During the 2021-2022 school year our team committed to a renewal of what makes Fort Thomas a treasure. Our team is committed to preparing each individual student to realize their personal success and for our schools to serve as the heartbeat of this thriving community. Informed by research and deep community involvement, we will continue to build the competencies each child needs to be competitive in the workforce and post-secondary education as described in our Portrait of a Graduate work.
This year our team will launch a five-year strategic plan designed to “spark” the renewal necessary after the challenges facing our nation. This strategic plan is grounded in stakeholder voice, empowerment and the ability to innovate to meet the needs of our students and community. The priorities outlined include ensuring our district remains among the top school districts in the nation in achievement, offers experiences and opportunities second to none, focuses on a positive and engaged school culture and ensures we are impacting individual student growth toward future success. Our teams this year will build transparent systems to communicate our progress, and action plans to ensure continuous improvement.
To remain up to date with all the events and activities throughout the district, we encourage you to visit calendar information on our website at https://www.fortthomas.kyschools.us.
We need your support and partnership! We are blessed to be part of something so special as the promise a new school year offers. Our schools are the heart of the community and our team pledges to serve to reflect the deep value our community places on hard work, individual responsibility, student achievement and the expectation that each child deserves a world-class education. Our teachers, principals, administrative staff and I encourage your feedback. Building upon amazing community support and energized by the best student body, faculty and staff in the state, we will continue to build excellence together. This is the tradition that drives everything we do. It is a great day to be in the Fort and I look forward to our continued success together!
