It’s Back to School for Staff Too!

On August 18th, the entire Visions organization – classified staff, certificated staff and leadership – kicked off the 2023-24 school year by gathering to hear messages from Superintendent Olmos, words of wisdom from keynote speaker Rosanna Herber, staff celebrations from Donna Glenn and more! As they filled up on coffee and breakfast, they also had the chance to fill up on gratitude and excitement for another year ahead.

“The Back to School kick-off was an exciting event with everything we needed to know as a collective to start the year off right. I enjoyed hearing insights into our strengths and opportunities to improve as an organization,” shared Spencer Summerhays, Business Analyst for the Internal Data & Systems Services Department. “Burritos and coffee were great too!”

With over 50 new staff joining Visions for the new school year, what better way to come together than with important information about the organization, updates about the current charter world and most importantly, appreciation for one another.

“It was wonderful getting to see everyone in person after the summer break and getting to know all the new counselors we have joining our team this year. They are all so kind, approachable and knowledgeable!” shared Jen Nino, Counselor for the Independent Study Academy. “I’m looking forward to the 2023-24 school year with our awesome team and supporting all of our students!”

Thank you to everyone who joined us for this year’s celebration. As all 450+ of us commit to becoming 1% better every day, we hope to carry our shared purpose and inspiration into another successful year at Visions!
