A Message From the Superintendent 


     Welcome to the 2022-23 school year. The USD 300 staff is excited to welcome your students back to school. Over the course of the last few years, we have been able to truly evaluate what we do, and how we do it, in order to continue the excellent education that USD 300 patrons have come to expect from Comanche County Schools. This can only be
accomplished with the support of our entire Comanche County Community.

     The USD 300 Board of Education, Administration, Teachers, and Staff have been working hard over the last few months to make sure that the 22-23 school year is set up to be a great year. With the new staff that has been hired, we know they will fit right in with our current school staff and hit the ground running to ensure we are educating our
students at high levels.

     I’d like to encourage all of the USD 300 patrons to stay involved in our school district and support our students and staff throughout the course of the school year. Given our current educational environment, all of us involved in education will appreciate an encouraging word, or sign of support. Thank you for the support that the Comanche County communities have given to USD 300 students and staff in the past, and I look forward to continuing the successes that USD 300 has achieved.
