A Message from Our Superintendent

To the Blackford County Schools Community,

Welcome to the start of the 2017-2018 school year! I am honored to serve as the superintendent of Blackford County Schools. As the school year begins, I am thankful for the opportunity and appreciate the support and warm welcome I have received. I look forward to learning more about the great people, programs, and activities we have in place and am anxious to begin the new school year.

I appreciate the hard work I see throughout the district in preparation for students to arrive very soon. Maintenance and custodial crews have worked hard to get the buildings in great shape to greet students. Secretaries and support staff have worked hard throughout the summer to prepare for our first year of online registration. Teachers and administrators have engaged in professional development, worked on new lesson plans and curriculum, and are dedicated to making this a great school year for the students at BCS!

The mission statement of our district is: Educating Students, Changing the World. It is our desire to continue to develop an environment and experiences with students that will prepare and challenge them to go forward and have a tremendous impact. To accomplish this goal, it takes every facet of the community working together in order to support the students we serve.

Thank you for choosing Blackford County Schools. We look forward to the great year ahead!
