Superintendent Message

Welcome to Benton Community School District!  

On behalf of the Benton Community School District, I extend a warm greeting to all of our staff, students, and parents as we begin the 2021-2022 school year.  

I am honored to begin my 3rd year in Benton Community School District and my 13th year as a School Superintendent. As we begin the 2021-2022 school year, we pause to reflect on the many changes and new challenges experienced last year. The last school year (2020-2021) was interesting, to say the least! I would sum it up with the following descriptors: exhilarating, turbulent, focused on learning, exciting, stressful, and also challenging with COVID-19, the derecho storm, online hybrid learning, and school closures.  However, as Bobcats, we faced the pandemic situation with initiative and perseverance.  I cannot say enough about how everyone stepped up to assist our students as well as our families and communities.  Unfortunately, but fortunately, we are now equipped with strategies and procedures for dealing with a pandemic!  Please take time to review our updated (1st 7 pages) Return to Learn Plan on the home webpage as well as our Welcome Back letter sent to all families through email. Again, welcome back to school. It's a great time to be a Bobcat!
