Superintendent of Schools
Norwin School District has Seven Guiding Principles for the Future Academic and Financial Success of the School District -- principles which have stood the test of time throughout Dr. Kerr's career in education administration. They are embodied in the above-pictured triangular, interdependent relationship among Quality Educational Programs and Services; Employee Empowerment and Accountability; and Fiscal Responsibility and Operational Efficiency. These guiding principles (shown below) are designed to sustain the quality and effectiveness of educational programs and services.
