I am thrilled to be back in the district working with this amazing School Board, staff and parent community.   
The Washington Union School District, established in 1868, has a long history of academic excellence and high expectations for students.  The district's committed staff, its supportive parent community and its high achieving students all contribute to the district's success.
Our School Board is among the best of the best and they are truly dedicated to the students and staff of the district.  The Board has demonstrated a commitment to small class size, a rigorous and enriching academic program, and a focus on respect and responsibility for all students.  The staff at the three schools in the district work together to see that every student is involved in engaging yet challenging instruction.  As a result, our students receive a strong foundation in all academic subjects and are well-prepared to assume the challenges of high school.
Beginning July 1, 2017, Gina Uccelli will take the reigns as Superintendent of Washington Union School District.  She is excited, prepared and will do a fantastic job as your new leader.  Until then, I am proud to be back.

We should all be so lucky to work in a place like Washington Union School District!

Interim Superintendent
