An Open Letter to Parents, Staff, and the Geary County Schools Community:
What an honor it is to begin another school year with the many dedicated people who make up USD 475. I am humbled by your hard work and focus on achieving excellence for our students. I look forward to working together with you this upcoming school year to reach our goals, do what’s best for students, and continue to make our district one we can absolutely be proud of.
Thank you for serving the Geary County Schools community.
I am excited to experience another year full of innovation and achievement. There is no greater honor- and challenge- than being entrusted with the education of the children in our community. As Superintendent, I am proud to lead an organization that is focused on what is best for students as well as employees. I see the purpose of USD 475 demonstrated each and every day; to create a safe and nurturing community that empowers the whole child to persevere toward their dreams and prepare them to contribute to a world that is unpredictable and full of ever changing possibilities.
Geary County Schools has a long history of excellence and our future continues to look bright. Achieving these great things together is made possible through strong partnerships between a great Board of Education, phenomenal employees, amazing students, involved parents and a community that truly values education.
We are committed to providing every student with an innovative, high quality education in a safe and caring environment. Our teachers, administrators and classified staff work together to engage our students and guide them to their fullest potential.
Again, thank you for your dedication to Geary County Schools, our community, and most importantly our students. You have chosen the most noble and rewarding of professions and we deeply appreciate your service. In the immortal words of President John F. Kennedy, “Children are the world’s most valuable resource and its best hope for the future.”
All the best for a wonderful school year.
Dr. Corbin Witt, Superintendent of Schools
