A Message from Superintendent Steven Unowsky

Dear Students, Families and Community Members,

I am proud and excited to join Richfield Public Schools as your new Superintendent! I'd  like to take this opportunity to introduce myself. As an educator, school leader and parent, I am very familiar with the Richfield community. I've always been impressed with the district's tradition of focusing on the students. This focus will guide us in the future as we work to engage students and meet challenges head on. Our commitment to a quality education for all students can only be described as Spartan Pride.We have several achievements worthy of celebration from the past year. Our graduation rate jumped 10 points, and our MN Comprehensive Assessments (MCA) advanced significantly at all schools. Enrollment has increased, and our financial picture continues to stabilize. Our students participate in extracurricular activities at some of the highest rates in the Twin Cities. In addition, the community passed a referendum to improve teaching and learning through technology. These achievements are just a beginning to all the things we can and will accomplish in the years ahead. As we look to the future, our top priorities include revisiting our mission and vision and creating a new 
strategic plan to guide our actions. Our strong, unified board has given clear charges:
  •  Personalize and accelerate learning for every student 
  •  Revitalize our team and create a highly collaborative environment
  •  Increase voice and partnership with all members of the community
  •  Determine a clear course and plan for the future
  •  Expand enrollment and stabilize the budget  

    Thanks to those of you who have made me feel welcome. My team is committed to ensuring that all students are prepared for success. The 2014-15 school year promises to be one of growth, energy and success for our students, teachers and school communities.
Best Regards, 

STEVEN UNOWSKY
Superintendent
