From The Superintendent

  • Dr. Kent Medlin One of my goals for the 2015-2016 school year is to engage several different audiences in discussion about Willard Schools. I have had one meeting with businesses located in the South side of our district, two Town Hall style meetings and one small group discussion with city officials. The following Town Hall meetings are scheduled later in the year and anyone is welcome to attend.

          • Central Elementary, October 12, 6:00p
          • Middle School, October 13, 6:30p
          • Orchard Hills Elementary, October 20, 6:00p
          • South Elementary, December 3, 6:00p

    It is very important to community members that our district remains "Unique to Willard". Willard community values run deep in our culture. What is important to parents in Willard is very different then other communities. I have always believed that the school needs to be a reflection of the community. The Town Hall meetings provide a venue for district administrators to share about district improvement goals, but the most important aspect is the time allowed for patron questions and comments. Our community takes great pride in Willard Schools and the district is working hard to listen to patrons and continue to develop strategies which help students succeed. Ultimately, everything we do is based on how to help students succeed not only in the 13 years they are in public schools, but in life. We need parent and community input to accomplish this goal! Come and join us at one of the meetings.

    Have a great weekend!
    See you at Homecoming!

    Dr. Kent Medlin

    One of the tasks we have as a school district is getting important information to you in a timely fashion. We believe it’s helpful to you and to the school if you have information about daily attendance, school cancellations, important reminders and emergencies as soon as possible.
