A Message from FADSS CEO

Camaraderie and Collaboration Are Key Moving Forward

With the 2021-2022 school year underway, I want to take a moment to reflect upon the tremendous challenges we have encountered – and successes we have shared – in public education.  

I can say with all honestly that in my more than 50 years in public education, I could not be prouder of Florida district school superintendents and their staff. The tremendous job each of you and your teams have done since March 2020 to ensure that Florida public education students continue to receive a quality education during this on-going crisis has been nothing short of spectacular! 

Throughout all the challenges and successes, it has been gratifying to see the camaraderie and sharing of information and resources among superintendents and across school districts. This genuine collaboration and cooperation are crucial as we continue to navigate the opportunities and obstacles side-by-side and hand-in-hand. 

While I know there are still many unanswered questions and uncertainty as we move forward, please know that we will continue to work together to strengthen Florida’s public schools! 

Thank you again for everything you, your administrators, and your district and school staff are doing for Florida’s students, their families, and your communities!

Serving together in education,  

Bill Montford
