Dear Sharon Community my name is Bill Gathers and it is both an honor and a privilege to serve as the interim superintendent for the Sharon City School District upon the retirement of Mr. Calla. Having grown up here and being a proud graduate of SHS, this is a community that I have always held close to my heart. I thank the Sharon City School Board for entrusting me with the important role of leading our cherished school district. As the interim, my main goal is to work collaboratively, efficiently, and effectively with all the administration, faculty, and staff to continue to ensure that our students receive the very best education and to provide a smooth transition as the School Board conducts the important work of searching for a permanent superintendent.
There is no doubt that the last two school years have been very challenging for all educators, students, and families as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, however, we are anticipating returning to the classroom for the start of school on August 30, 2021 with masks being optional at this time. Although there will be no virtual component of the daily classroom, we have available an at-home cyber selection in the form of the Sharon Cyber Academy should parents wish to avail themselves of this option. Please note that either choice provides a pathway to a Sharon High School Diploma.
I know that most students and parents are eager to return to school with a fresh start, however, we must continue to monitor conditions both within our state, county, and community and be ready to adjust to various mandates and recommendations from the CDC, the Department of Health, and the Commonwealth should conditions worsen. We will also be continuing the cleaning protocols, the entry monitoring, and the social distancing of 3 feet for the health and safety of all.
I look forward to meeting all the faculty, staff, students, and parents in the next few months and wish everyone a successful start to the 2021-22 school year here within the Sharon City School District.
William D. Gathers, Ed. D.
