Administrative Services

The Administrative Services Department serves as a liaison between the Superintendent’s Office and the district schools. The Assistant Superintendent for Administrative Services oversees the supervision of school administrators. This department works collaboratively with all district administrators in providing recommendations to the Superintendent for continuous improvement of the district, particularly in the area of school leadership.

Staff and parents in the Cartwright School District #83 have a very specific philosophy about creating an emotionally safe learning environment at our schools. We strongly believe that all children in our schools should have access to all the benefits and activities that the school offers. No one should ever feel uncomfortable because he/she can’t participate in whatever is happening at school. Every person in our school community is equally respected and valued. All students and all adults are winners!

It is our mission to ensure all our students acquire the knowledge and skills essential to achieving their full potential and becoming productive citizens.

It is our vision to have excelling schools that meet the needs of all of our students and infuse a purpose and commitment to lifelong learning.

Administrative Services values efficacy, positive interpersonal relationships and lifelong learning by our students, parents, and employees.

Administrative Services' goals are as follows:

  • To increase student achievement.
  • To provide exceptional customer service.
  • To provide opportunities for innovation.
