The following is an open letter composed by Mendocino County Superintendent of Schools Nicole Glentzer intended for the citizens of Mendocino County:
Dear Mendocino County Residents,
I am honored to have been elected to be the next Mendocino County Superintendent of Schools. I appreciate the efforts of countless volunteers and supporters that contributed to a winning outcome in the June 7th election. I am especially grateful for the support of educators who collectively and individually made their voices heard this election. Thank you for placing your trust in me.
As a parent and educator, I know firsthand the challenges our schools are facing: the staffing shortage, the impact of COVID, school safety, and student performance. When I take office in January I will continue to work collaboratively to address these challenges and I am committed to leading our schools and our County Office of Education to overcome them.
There is much work to be done in our schools and I look forward to working side by side with educators, staff, administrators, parents, and the public to ensure that the students in Mendocino County receive the very best education we can provide them.
County Superintendent Elect,
Nicole H. Glentzer
