Dear Parents and Community Members,
It is a tremendous honor to serve our children, parents, staff and community as the superintendent of Cass School District 63. I'm continuously amazed at the culture of student-centered excellence among our wonderful teachers and staff, as well as our supportive parents and school community. Our "Focus on the Child" is not just a motto, but something we believe in and work to practice every day.
A central component of our culture is one of continuous growth and improvement, which is embedded in our Vision 2025 Strategic Plan. As part of that plan, there are significant facility needs that must be addressed, particularly as it relates to several safety and security concerns as well as the district's aging and inefficient heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems. On the other hand, we have already made tremendous progress on many of our goals, one result being the addition of a wonderful STEM program at Concord Elementary School this fall. We are so excited!
We will work continuously to grow and improve as a school district so that we can provide your child with the best possible education. Please reach out anytime and thank you for your support of our children and our schools!
Mark R. Cross, Superintendent
