Mason Schools Superintendent Gail Kist-Kline spent the pre-dawn hours today greeting students on the first day of school.
The 11,000-student Mason Schools in Warren County starts the school year today and it also marks the first school day for the academically top-rated school system’s new superintendent.
The Enquirer’s Michael D. Clark spoke with Kist-Kline this morning:
A veteran superintendent who came this summer from Hamilton County’s Wyoming Schools to replace long-time Mason leader Kevin Bright, Kist-Kline said there is nothing like the first day of classes for generating excitement for both students and school staffers.
“The students this morning are energized and ready for another great year of learning,” said Kist-Kline.
“The weather is absolutely gorgeous and everything is going smoothly so far,” she said between pausing to personally welcome students outside at the school’s main entrance.
Mason Schools, which are among the top-rated academically in Ohio, begins the 2011-2012 school year on a high note, having gained one category on the recently released state annual reports. The Ohio Department of Education’s preliminary reports have Mason rated “Excellent With Distinction” for the last school year, up from the previous school year’s rating of “Excellent”.
