Welcome to the Shawnee Mission School District. On July 2, I began my tenure as superintendent, and I am committed to continuing and strengthening the excellence that is at the core of this district. In my brief time here, I have already experienced the caring commitment to every child’s success which forms the heart of the district’s current and future success.

The district is fortunate to be supported by 14 municipalities, each of which recognizes and supports the critical importance of public education. In fact, it is the strong partnership between the school district and its multiple communities that creates such tremendous opportunities for our students and supports a wonderful quality of life for all residents. The Shawnee Mission School District’s tradition of excellence and commitment to innovation make our school district community stand out as an exceptional place to live and learn.

I encourage you to explore this web site and learn more about the school district. We are a diverse school community whose strength is in the students and residents we serve. From academics to extracurricular activities, our students excel. I look forward to getting to know the families, community members, and most importantly, the students of this district. It is a time of great opportunity for the Shawnee Mission School District, and working together we will continue our tradition of excellence, ensuring that each child is prepared for success in school, and in life.
