Message from the Superintendent:

Beginning with the 2017-18 school year, I will be leading our district as superintendent and could not be more honored and excited to serve in this capacity. I have been an educator for more than 25 years and have served in a variety of administrative positions including Assistant Superintendent, Director of Human Resources, Director of Student Services, Director of Special Education, and building level Administrator.  Throughout these positions, I have always kept my focus squarely on being an educator first and an administrator second.   


I earned my Bachelor of Science degree from Western Illinois University and Master of Arts, Specialist, and Doctoral degree in Educational Leadership from Southern Illinois University-Edwardsville.  I am married with four children and live in Maryville, IL.


As superintendent, I plan to continue current strategies and practices to increase student achievement as well as implementing some new initiatives to ensure our students are getting the best possible education at Dupo School District.  I believe our success reflects the dedicated work by our staff to give the best opportunities to our students, and we will continue to make improvements to increase achievement and opportunities.


I believe that district decisions should be made in the best interests of our students. I believe in engaging the community to build upon the district’s foundation of excellence. I believe in working with district teachers and staff in a supportive family environment. I am committed to community engagement. My goals are to be visible at school and community functions and to listen to the community and actively seek their feedback on district operations. Honoring the work that has been done, I will continue the traditions, values, and culture that have been established. I will focus on further strengthening the academic programs that meet the needs of students and families.


I encourage you to stop by Central Office to visit with me when you have time.  I would love to hear your thoughts, concerns, and suggestions.  



Sincerely,


Kelly Carpenter, Ed.D.
