Welcome to the Peru Central School District
I am honored to serve as the Superintendent of the Peru Central School District. You will find in Peru that the instructional opportunities offered to children in this community and the support of the community for the school district is inspiring. We will work this year to provide the highest quality education for every student in this district and plan to expand upon those opportunities.
We are guided by the Board of Education’s Strategic Plan 20/20 as we weave these inquiries into every meaningful discussion concerning our academic and social programs. In Peru, we believe we need to design and engage our students in authentic, rigorous tasks that have real-world application. That we must allow students to have a choice in what and how they learn. We strive to cultivate citizens who value and support social justice as they navigate our complex societal global climate.
We also support the need to evolve and expand opportunities for enrichment for students at all levels, even in fiscally challenging times. This progression not only occurs in the delivery of instruction but in the spaces in which it happens as well. Our community’s recent commitment to redesign learning areas in our schools has charged the administration, faculty, and staff to rethink classroom configuration practices for the ever-evolving 21st-century student through our four phase capital project. We look forward to partnering with our community and grow relationships and national experts as we continue to strive to be at the forefront of innovation. We want more for our students and how we deliver services may change. It is an exciting time and we will continue to aspire to provide the best educational experience for all students in our district.
