Rockwood School District Superintendent Dr. Mark Miles held the second of four informal "Meet Mark" sessions at Rockwood Summit High School the evening of Tuesday, Sept. 17.
Following a brief summary of Dr. Miles' personal and professional life, discussion topics included the school calendar, snow days, homework practices, and the use of district Chromebooks in students' homes.
"As I think about our roles as educators, it is extremely important work," said Miles. "I now consider the approximately 21,000 students we have in Rockwood as my own, and I have had a great opportunity to get to know many of them. I often talk about the balance of the three A's – academics, arts, and athletics. Our responsibility is to partner with students, parents, and community to foster meaningful and memorable experiences in these areas throughout Rockwood."
Meghan King has children at Rockwood Summit High, Rockwood South Middle and Bowles Elementary.
"We talked about scheduling, but really I just wanted to meet Dr. Miles and hear a little bit about him," she said. "I was very impressed."
"Meet Mark" meetings are also scheduled for Monday, Sept. 23, at Marquette and Tuesday, Oct. 1, at Lafayette. The events will be held in the schools' libraries at 7:00 pm.
The Eureka quadrant "Meet Mark" session took place Sept. 9.
