Welcome to the 2013-14 school year! I am anticipating a great year of learning for the students of East Allen County Schools and myself.
As the new superintendent in East Allen, I plan to spend much of my time meeting with staff and students out at our schools, and meeting with stakeholders in the community to listen and to learn. Look to see me at school assemblies, concerts, science fairs, athletic events and other neighborhood happenings. When you see me at a community or school event, please introduce yourself to me and take a minute to chat. I am interested in your opinion of what we are doing well and what we can do to improve.
EACS has an excellent reputation for supporting its students through strong community support. It is one of the qualities that drew me to East Allen. With the outstanding higher education offerings, East Allen County Schools is a fantastic place that offers lifelong learning opportunities for the whole family. My goal is to help make EACS the premiere school district in Northeast Indiana.
Making a difference! Having an impact! Improving student academic achievement! A place where students can Dream It. Do It. I want East Allen County Schools to be the best that it can be and I want you to be part of that effort!
I look forward to meeting each of you.
Dr. Kenneth Folks
Superintendent of Schools
