Note From Superintendent Kim

It is with great joy and enthusiasm that I extend my warmest greetings as your Superintendent of Batavia Public School District 101. I am honored to be a part of this incredible community and to have the privilege of serving as the superintendent of schools.

My vision for our district is one of collaboration, student-centered focus, and continuous improvement. I firmly believe that education is a partnership between the school, parents, and the community. With open lines of communication and mutual respect, we can work hand in hand to provide our students with the best possible education and support they deserve.

Our dedicated team of educators and staff are the backbone of our district, and we are committed to supporting their professional growth and well-being. By empowering our teachers and staff, we can inspire a passion for lifelong learning that will undoubtedly reflect in the achievements of our students. We are dedicated to an environment where students feel safe, encouraged, and inspired to explore, dream, and achieve beyond their imagination.

We also believe parents and guardians play an integral role in a child’s education, and we value your partnership immensely. I encourage you to actively engage with our schools, participate in school events, and communicate with teachers and administrators. Join us in reaching our aspiration to see every student achieve. Together, we can nurture an atmosphere of academic excellence and personal growth for your children.

With an unwavering commitment to excellence, we will build a brighter future for every student in our care. Thank you for visiting our district’s website and contact us if you have any questions.
