Local School Superintendents Outline Visions for Coming Year


Byline: The Register-Guard

This was the week when many area school superintendents welcomed back district employees with speeches outlining their visions for the coming school year.

Here's what they had to say in Eugene and Springfield:

Eugene Superintendent George Russell: Addressing a crowded auditorium at South Eugene High School on Thursday, Russell spoke about the challenges of teaching "the Millenial Generation," a term coined by author Bill Strauss that refers to children born between 1983 and 2000.

"How we respond to this generation will determine our future success as a school system," said Russell, now in his sixth year as Eugene superintendent.

"It's the right thing to do for all our students, and it's a moral imperative that we take on with passion, commitment and dedication," he said.
