I am excited to begin my second year as the leader of the School District of Lancaster. My vision is for all students to be college and career ready when they graduate from the McCaskey Campus. While I whole-heartedly believe this is possible for all students, we need your help. I encourage each of you to be a strong advocate in your child’s education. Whether they are beginning their educational journey or are returning as a Red Tornado, students need your support throughout their schooling.

I challenge our stakeholders to find a more committed team of educators, leaders and building support staff. In my 30 plus years in public education, I have never worked with a group of professionals who are more committed to student success. I encourage all of our learners to take advantage of the many opportunities and programs available which are designed to engage and grow our student body.

On behalf of the Board of School Directors, thank you for trusting us with your child’s education. There is no greater responsibility than preparing students for their future. Here’s to a fantastic 2016-17 school year!

Together We Can!

Dr. Damaris Rau
