New Superintendent's Entry Plan

Dear Community Members and Colleagues,
I am pleased to provide you with my Superintendent's Entry Plan, which details priorities I will be addressing - and the input I will be seeking - over the next few months. 
One of my top priorities in the coming weeks will be to review the District's 2023-2024 budget and projections for future years. While the 2023 operating referendum will provide the District with critically-needed financial resources, recently approved state funding for public education falls far short of what public school districts need. I will address this further, along with other key elements of my Entry Plan, in a Summary Report to School Board and community members this fall.
As the new Superintendent of the Shorewood School District, I want express my deepest gratitude for your support as I begin my tenure. Your commitment to our mission and to the future of our schools is truly humbling, and it is an honor for me to become part of this community.
I look forward to meeting with staff, District families and community allies in the weeks ahead.  We will communicate meet and greet opportunities very soon. 
Laurie J. Burgos
