As Central Bucks students prepare to return to the classroom next week, the district's new leadership working to bolster confidence after a trying summer.
After a rocky few months for the district, which included the departure of its former superintendent, David Weitzel will be in the helm at the start of the new school year.
In July, the Central Bucks School Board unanimously voted to break the contract with Rodney Green, who left the district with $365,000 and a year of health insurance.
In a letter posted on the district’s website Tuesday, Weitzel sought to reinforce the district’s dedication to education and reinstitute the focus on the students.
“Quality teaching and meaningful learning remain our primary focus. The central bucks school district has a well-deserved reputation for its high-achiveing schools and comprehensive educational programs,” Weitzel said in the letter.
“Please know that we remain committed to the continuous process of reflecting and revising our instructional programs to ensure we prepare out students to meet challenges and take advantages of the opportunities they will encounter,” the letter states.
Classes start Tuesday for all Central Bucks students.
