Message from the Superintendent

David Smith

It is hard to believe we are halfway through the school year!

As we settle in to our spring semester, I wanted to take a moment to welcome you and tell you a little about our school system. The EVSC is truly working to redefine education through GAIN - Growth in Academics through Innovation and Neuroeducation. GAIN is a comprehensive framework that combines the latest brain research with our focus on both cognitive learning and social emotional learning in order to maximize student outcomes. GAIN helps us reach our goal of preparing every student for success after high school. 

We can’t do this work alone. We are blessed to live in a community where education is a high priority. We have forged many partnerships in our community with parents, residents, business leaders and elected officials - all of whom share our commitment and dedication to ensuring students reach their highest potential. 

I invite you to visit our schools so you can personally see why the EVSC is different. Visit with our principals and school staff to see how much they genuinely care for each and every student. See how welcoming our schools are to students and families and the rigor and student engagement that takes place in our classrooms every day. 

Finally, I invite you to learn more about the EVSC through our annual report “State of Our Schools.” Take a few minutes to read through our report and watch all the videos we have on this website. 

As we welcome students back for another fantastic school year, I can’t wait to see where the future takes us and can’t wait to see the next generation of leaders emerge from our halls. 

David B. Smith
