Mr. David Shimer

It is an honor to be serving as the interim superintedent for the Burton School District.  The staff at Burton prides itself in the service that we provide to our students, parents, and community.  We are proud to be a Capturing Kids' Hearts district who value the relationships that we build with our students and acknowledge that these relationships are building blocks to increasing student achievement.  We are also proud of the 1:World program that provides a connected device to every student which brings creative options and choice to the classroom on a daily basis. 

The management team and the board of trustees are committed to preparing every student to be college and world ready.  The focus of the management team and teachers to reach this vision is through the 3 L's: LITERACY, LESSON DESIGN, and LEADERSHIP BEST PRACTICES.  Literacy is integral to all students' success in all aspects of their education.  The management team and teachers continue to work on ways to increase the effectiveness of every lesson through focusing our professional development on specific components of lesson design that have the most impact.  Finally, leadership best practices involve having administration focus on instructional leadership which involves having site and district leaders and coaches in classrooms on a regular basis with follow up support.

I am excited to see what this school year has to offer and the growth that we will be able to see through our collective efforts.  We value parents as our partners in helping each student find success and I encourage parents to reach out to teachers or site admin if there is any clarity needed for any situation.  I also hope parents and community will reach out to share good things about Burton District as well!

Looking forward to a GREAT YEAR!

David Shimer
