State of the District - June 2022 Update

Mark Madson
Dear Parkland School District Community: 
I am honored to  serve the Parkland School District as your Superintendent of Schools.  The Parkland School District sets a high standard academically, athletically, and in the arts across the state.  To be a part of this amazing organization and family is something very special.  I look forward to maintaining the excellent programs, and growing and expanding educational opportunities, academic achievement, and co-curricular activities for our students.  
The leadership of the administrative team and school board has positioned the school district to succeed.  The tradition of excellence in all things continues to be a focus for our school district.  Over the course of this school year, as your Superintendent, I focused on four main areas:  
1. Building Trust by Listening and Learning
2. Belonging
3. Excellence across Academics, the Arts, and Athletics 
4. Post Pandemic Planning for Student Success
Parkland School District is the centerpiece of this community and students will continue to be at the forefront of our decision making.  We will continue to advocate for the community and maintain a healthy and fiscally responsible budget.  My office will always be open to you to discuss how to improve the experiences we provide to our students.  I look forward to joining you on this journey for our children's future.  Please consider following me on Twitter (@parklandsupt) to get District news as I share some of the great things that are happening within our schools and community.  
In closing, please know I believe if we remain strong together, be positive, stay safe, and be united as a community, we will all be doing what is best  for our children.  Enjoy your summer and reach out to me or anyone on our staff if we may be of assistance to you.  #ParklandStrong
All the best,
Mark J. Madson, Ed.D.
