Dear Shaker Families, Staff and Friends,
I am both honored and excited to serve as Interim Superintendent of the Shaker Schools. I want you to know that the district will continue its success as we move through this transition year. We will maintain our focus on academic achievement and deliver a high-quality education through excellence, equity and exploration of the many opportunities that Shaker Heights Schools offers.
Our District continues to make steady and significant progress for our students’ academic success as we refine our curriculum and enhance course offerings. Shaker students enjoy amazing accomplishments in music, the arts, and sports. Our international travel opportunities for students to explore the world are second to none. We retain a world-class teaching faculty and expert staff to create a first-class school district for our students.
My mission is to carry this momentum forward throughout the year. Given the wonderful people of our Shaker Heights community and the hard work of our teachers, administrators, and staff, I am confident for our success. During the next 12 months as interim superintendent, I look forward to working with you to keep our school community great. It’s a great day in Shaker schools!
Dr. Stephen M. Wilkins, Interim Superintendent
Shaker Heights City School District
