Budget passes, goals are in place for 2011-2012

"By the end of this spring, every classroom will have a short-throw projector and one computer for every 2.5 children," said Johns.

Yet, even with more technology, Johns said that the abilities of his teaching staff and administration are what makes Liverpool a successful district.

"A tool that's not in the right hand doesn't matter," said Johns.

Johns will also focus on the continued success of his implemented E2s (Essential and Enduring Learners) and building school excellence teams. With both plans, students are prepared to learn certain material at each grade level, so they excel in the classroom as they get older. The goal is to not leave a single student without a program or resource, according to Johns.

"We've worked hard without the team approvals, and we only achieved so much," said Johns. "One of the reasons I came to Liverpool is because we are a team of administrators and teachers that want to be great."
