CEO Message

The month of July is very significant as July 4th signifies the passage of the Declaration of Independence by the Continental Congress on July 4, 1776, which declared the original colonies to be free from British rule. As a kid, I fondly remember our family gatherings to celebrate July 4th in Blountstown, FL (only 2 red lights in the entire county of Calhoun).

My mom made an amazing 20-layer cake that was the envy of every homemaker in the county. And even with the exact recipe, some things are extra special because of the person that makes it.  

Similarly, an exceptional school district stands out because of exceptional leadership. As we all enjoy our July 4th festivities and celebrate the independence of our country, I will also be thinking of each of you and the exceptional leadership you provide for your school district.  

It goes unnoticed by many that summer in school districts are exceptionally busy preparing for the upcoming school year. However, please try to get a little rest when you can.   July also marks the start of FADSS annual business partner program, and I want to take a moment to welcome and thank FADSS 2024 – 2025 annual partners for their year-round support of FADSS and Florida Superintendents.  

I wish you all a fun and safe July 4th and summer, and look forward to seeing you at our FADSS Fall Conference in September!

Yours in education,

Bill Montford
