Message from the Superintendent, Dr. Steven Baule
Dear Muncie Community Schools Stakeholder,
I am honored and humbled to have been selected as the next superintendent for the Muncie Community Schools Corporation. My family and I are eager to become contributing members of the Muncie Community. I am grateful for the work done by Mr. Heller and his team to make Muncie Schools a more responsive organization to the needs of the community within the fiscal realities in which we need to operate.
I am cognizant of the significant responsibilities consigned to a superintendent and the rest of the school corporation's educational leaders, and that each day parents and other caregivers entrust us with their most valuable possessions, their children. I guarantee that under my leadership that I will work to ensure that every member of the instructional and support teams in our schools always does our best to provide each child placed in our care with a safe, secure and appropriate environment that allows us to guide them to reach their fullest potential. I hope that this will allow us to fulfill the mission of Muncie Community Schools, to provide a quality educational environment that allows every student to maximize his or her potential and, upon graduation, possess the basic skills necessary to be a positive, productive, contributing member of society.
I look forward to meeting as many stakeholders as possible over the next few months and getting to know the concerns, needs and aspirations of the community for its most valuable resources, its children and young adults. I have worked with Mr. Heller to develop a thoughtful transition plan so that on July 1, I would be as prepared as possible to lead your schools. Over the next few weeks, I will be trying to meet with key stakeholders and learn as much as I can about the schools and the community.
Please feel free to introduce yourself to me as you see me at school events or in the community. I look forward to meeting you and working with you for the betterment of the Muncie Community Schools.
