It doesn’t seem that long ago when Mansfield Schools were in dire straits. A constant change in Superintendent leadership, school board meetings every week, and the cloud of uncertainty looming over the district. Fast forward, that’s all changed and Mansfield looks better than ever.
When Robin Ross, a Texas native was hired to take over the helm as Superintendent, he came in with a single focus. That focus was to get Mansfield back on track as quickly as possible. Ross has one motto that he firmly stands behind, “Our kids come first.”
Changes in a school system are the norm. But, Ross has a mindset that looks beyond what’s needed, and focuses on the what can be done to improve, and attract. “Our entire staff is a team of insightful opinions. Those opinions help us make the needed changes to make everyone’s daily routine better, safer, and more efficient” stated Ross. “It matters if a light bulb needs changed, or new paint is needed on a wall. The little things make a big difference.”
Ross, along with each School Principal took us on a guided tour of what’s taken place in the weeks prior to and immediately following dismissal for Summer break. Join us as we illustrate a few of the major improvements.
Improvements that are both readily seen, and some that were not is a process the Ross believes in. “We want our students, faculty, and parents to know that we’re working hard to make even more changes. Mansfield has a bright future.” added Ross.
