I hope everyone has had a relaxing summer!
As you make your way back to school, please be aware of road construction on Route 21 (Brecksville Road) between Route 82 and the school. It is expected to be completed in September. A great deal of work has also occurred at CVCC over the summer, including updates to the driveway, main entrances, as well as the Adult Education offices, School of Nursing, and Computer Networking Academy program area. We are so excited to start the 2022-23 school year!
As I reflect on the past few years and how education has changed, I am proud of how CVCC has adjusted and continued to offer exceptional programming. I cannot continue without saying "Thank you" to the staff for being there for your students and ensuring we delivered quality instruction. CVCC remained constant in what we do, while simultaneously adopting new techniques which are now blended into our instruction.
This year we will continue to strive to strengthen our "Four Foundations" and "Four Pillars" by attending training, touring other career technical centers, and engaging with our community. The statement I would use to describe what my aspirations are for the coming year is "The First Step of going from Great to Exceptional." This reference to Jim C. Collins' book Good to Great, points out how we have spent the last five years strategically securing resources, aligning instruction, and upgrading equipment, labs, and the facility. Now, we are going to focus on what will lead CVCC into the future to remain relevant to our students, community, and career technical education. I say "we" because this will be a collective effort of ideas: we are participating in training as teams, all staff are invited to come share with me their thoughts on the future, and the strategic plan will be reviewed incorporating the five years of data gathered.
Administration welcomes all new staff and students to the 2022-23 school year!
