Superintendent's Message

Dear Families of the Lemon Grove School District,
 
I began my tenure as superintendent of our district on July 1, 2019.  I sincerely thank our Board of Trustees for having the confidence and trust in my ability to serve our community in this key leadership role.  Additionally, it is an honor and privilege to lead one of the pillar institutions in our community; Lemon Grove is rich in resources, diversity and overwhelmingly supportive of our public schools.  
 
Over the past 20 months, I’ve had the pleasure to listen and speak with families, teachers, and LGSD classified support staff, and these conversations have enlightened, expanded, and grown my depth of conviction in our ability to achieve great things in our district.
 
I appreciate and respect the trust you have put in us to facilitate your child’s education.  The Board's selection of me is a strong indication in their resolve in continuing with the identified goals and strategies set forth over the past two years.
 
We will stay the course by:
 
1. Engaging our Students with high quality instruction and innovative classroom environments
2. Students, Teachers, Leaders, and Staff growing as learners
3. Increasing attendance of students and staff; and reducing chronic absenteeism districtwide
 
Through stakeholder collaboration and a focus on improving student success, I believe in our ability to succeed! With an innovation and continuous improvement mindset, we can create all of the conditions necessary for our students to maximize their potential and gifts. Again, I am grateful to our Board for their steady stewardship of our district and I look forward to learning and growing together in service of our students, our families and our community.
 
All my best,
Erica
