Dear Parents and Guardians,
It is my great honor to welcome your children back for another school year at Edwards-Knox Central School!
Each new year brings new beginnings and opportunities for us all to learn and grow together. I am thrilled to start a new chapter as your Superintendent of Schools.
Edward-Knox has a legacy of outstanding community and parental support. Our district is served by a high-performing team committed to educating all students and inspiring them to achieve their full potential. As superintendent, I hope to earn your trust and develop a shared vision for not merely sustaining, but rather, strengthening the programs and culture that make our school district one to emulate.
My educational philosophy centers on prioritizing students in every single decision.
I believe that cultivating relationships and building trust is essential to effective school district leadership. I believe in empowering staff, students, and members of our school community to work together to achieve excellence.
Progress cannot be made in the classroom alone, and we must foster innovative partnerships to support academic achievement, social and emotional wellness, and the future success of our learners. As educators, we must adapt to new technologies and approaches to learning, while keeping important Edwards-Knox traditions and values alive.
I look forward to meeting you in the coming weeks and months, and gaining a deeper understanding of the traditions and values that represent Edwards-Knox.
As parents, you are the first and most important educator in your child’s life, and I greatly value our partnership. Thank you for entrusting our school district with your child’s education.
Please contact your child’s teacher, principal, or me directly if you have any questions or concerns throughout the school year.
I wish you all a positive and productive school year!
Erin E. Woods
