Carol Smith

Academic Director,
Elementary Education


As the Academic Director of Elementary Education, I work closely with administrators and teachers in our primary, elementary, and intermediate schools to ensure students’ academic and social-emotional needs are met while a passion for learning is cultivated. Our department also houses six elementary instructional specialists who work in schools to support academic success. We are committed to providing quality curriculum and instructional supports from students’ first days in Kindergarten to their transition to middle school.

Our district remains focused on providing a safe and nurturing learning environment for all students. Additionally, it is a priority for the Elementary Education team to help solidify and strengthen foundational and leadership skills in order for our students to experience more success during their secondary years.

We invite parents and stakeholders to explore the many informational links provided for information about our programs and instructional practices. Please contact me if I can be of assistance.
