Superintendent Jacobus completes 100 Days: 100 Visits
November marked the end of Superintendent Keith Jacobusís first 100 serving in the South Washington County Schools. Part of his entry plan when he began in July was to complete 100 visits in his first 100 days with students, staff and community members. At the end of his first 100 days, Superintendent Jacobus had completed 128 formal meetings along with numerous informal visits to each school in the district and with non-school groups throughout the community. He presented a report to the School Board at the Jan. 10 meeting reflecting on what he learned throughout the process.
Superintendent Jacobus asked four questions when he met with people from around the district:
- What is working well?
- What is working but could be improved?
- What, if anything, should be abandoned?
- What three suggestions do you have for the new superintendent?
He said that overall he is pleased with the structures and processes the district has in place to address some of the areas of concerns brought up in his 100 Day visits, and that he is confident that the district is moving in a positive direction to help students realize their dreams.
