A Message from the Superintendent
Dear Parents, Community Members, and Members of the CCPS Family:
I would like to take this opportunity to wish you a very happy Thanksgiving. As Superintendent, I often reflect on how thankful I am to have the opportunity to lead this county’s school system. I am also thankful to live in a country that holds public education as a fundamental right for all of its citizens, so that every child has an opportunity to succeed.
In public education we are charged with the mission of educating all children, and it is an honor to work with employees, parents, business leaders, elected officials, and community members who recognize this cause as a noble one.
As we celebrate this Thanksgiving holiday, I would like to thank you for your support of this county’s students. They each have varied backgrounds, carry with them different life experiences, and comprise all levels of learning. However, when they walk through the doors of Cecil County Public Schools, they become part of a family that will celebrate their individuality while also helping them to discover the many possibilities that are made possible by acquiring an education.
D’Ette W. Devine, Ed.D.
