A Message to Florida Superintendents from FADSS CEO

 May is a Time for Celebration

It is hard to believe the month of May is already upon us. When I was a high school principal and throughout my 10 years as superintendent, the month of May was one of my favorite times of the year because of graduation and all the activities, celebrations and recognitions associated with this pivotal moment in student’s lives.  

I have always loved participating in high school graduations. There is nothing more thrilling than seeing the excitement, pride, and joy on the faces of students as well as parents/loved ones, as the students walked across the stage to receive their diplomas. Each student has endured their own challenges and successes. That is certainly something to celebrate!  

Likewise, we need to celebrate and recognize the tremendous sacrifices and hard work of teachers and administrators that worked extremely hard every day to ensure that students are learning and excelling; school staff that kept schools running; cafeteria workers that kept students fed; school nurses who tended to the sick; bus drivers who transported students to and from school; and myriad others that play a daily role in ensuring that public school students have access to a high quality education.  

This is a great time of the year to celebrate, and to pause and reflect on the hard work and dedication that have brought our young people to an exciting time in their lives.  

Thank you for your dedication, service, and commitment to Florida public school students!  

Yours in Education,

Senator Bill Montford
FADSS CEO
