As the new superintendent of the Ben Bolt – Palito Blanco ISD, I want to express the excitement that my wife, Meredith, and I feel about becoming part of this wonderful community. We have recently moved into a new home within walking distance of the High School. We are excited about meeting our new neighbors and becoming part of this community.
At every stop in my career in education, my goal has been to help build a school that I would be proud to have my own children attend. That is truer now than ever, since my daughter Josephine will enroll as a freshman at Ben Bolt High School this fall.
This will be an exciting year for the district. We are welcoming a new high school principal, a new athletic director, and a new band director, and I believe that the team we have put together will not only build upon our prior successes, but take those programs to new heights. Our expectations are very high.
Our goal is to make Ben Bolt – Palito Blanco the best school district in South Texas. We will begin a technology initiative this year aimed at bringing the tools and resources to our teachers and students to fully engage with new digital learning opportunities that are becoming available. We will be adding advanced courses at the middle school and high school, and we are working to expand the number of career and technical courses offered at the high school.
And that’s just the beginning. We hope that you are as excited as we are, and we want everyone in the community to be a part of what we are going to build. We cannot succeed without your support. School started this year on August 24th, and things are just getting started. It's going to be a great year.
Tim Little, Ed. D.
