Administrative Assistant to the Superintendent:
Dear Pickens County Schools Students, Staff, Parents, and Community Members:
I am excited to begin what I anticipate will be an exciting and productive school year. I believe every child can, and will, attain the education and skills necessary to achieve their dreams of a meaningful and bright future. Our focus in Pickens County remains constant: We believe all children can learn. We care about each student, and we will provide our best efforts to each of them. Our schools will be safe places where students are engaged, challenged to meet the standards necessary for college or a career, and where fun is encouraged. We want students to build productive and sustaining relationships, and know that our sole purpose is to support them as they become the productive citizens we know they can be. Our focus will always be the children and families we serve. They are why we do what we do, and I will never lose sight of that. Our students deserve nothing less than our best.
I am honored to serve as your superintendent and I am very grateful for your support. I have had many diverse roles in leadership over my lifetime. Those experiences have prepared me to lead our school district to meet the high expectations the community demands and our students deserve. I appreciate the work of our educators and support staff, and value the strength of a unified school board and community. We are fortunate to have a school board who makes decisions based on the success and well-being of our students and community. Their leadership continues to demonstrate character and focus. I am humbled and grateful to the board members for placing their faith in me, and I intend to work in partnership with them in guiding this district forward.
The contribution of parents, students, staff and community members are essential to high quality education. Everything we do is for the future success of our children. As your superintendent, I welcome your ideas and suggestions.
Dr. Carlton Wilson
