He cites several issues as ongoing challenges for the District. Mr. Johnson states that we must work to “prepare for diversity and be able to provide a quality education to children from many different backgrounds.” In addition, he states that we must create an atmosphere where all children can meet challenges and succeed. He states that the Board of Trustees continues to place a high priority on recruiting and retaining quality teachers.
“The McKinney community has high expectations for their children, and with that comes high expectations for their education and learning environment. We see this as a positive and work hard to provide the high standard of education that the Board, District, and community at large expects for all students.”
