Interim Superintendent

District Mission
The Raymond Central community is committed to providing a positive, challenging learning environment which prepares each individual student to be a responsible citizen in an everchanging society.

Raymond Central is a consolidated public school district incorporating the communities of Davey, Raymond, Agnew, Ceresco and Valparaiso. In 2017, a new preschool program was added to the Jr-Sr High campus. At the same time, the 6th grade transition program moved into new classrooms adjacent to the preschool. Elementary K-5 centers are located in both Ceresco and Valparaiso. Grades 7-12 attend a traditional Jr-Sr High that meets the varied needs of a wide range of students. All facilities have been updated allowing award-winning programs, high quality academic instruction, innovative teaching and one-to-one technology integration.

·         Support multimillion dollar EIR grant

·         Implement new teacher evaluation model
