Rockwood Administrators Go 'Back to the Future'


Rockwood School District administrators gathered at Lafayette High​ on Friday for the annual Administrators' Conference​​​. It was a chance for district leadership to come together, interact and learn from each other as they prepare to welcome students and teachers back for the 2019-2020 school year.

"This is like the first day of school for me," Superintendent Dr. Mark Miles said while addressing the group. "I got up early this morning. I just couldn't wait."

Miles started the day off by introducing himself, personally and professionally. ​He made sure to tie in to the day's theme, "Back to the Future."

Miles stressed the importance administrators play in cultivating meaningful relationships and crafting memorable experiences for students in the district. He reminded leadership to remain mindful of the values and goals outlined in "The Way Forward,"​ the new five-year strategic plan for the district that was approved by the Board o​f Education in June.​

For the rest of the day, attendees took part in collaborative learning and team-building activities that reinforced the tenets of "The Way Forward" and administrators' role in making the plan a success. Miles; Dr. Lisa Counts, assistant superintendent supervision of schools; and Dr. Renee Trotier, director of learning development, led the day's sessions.​
