Fountain earns board approval in mid-year review

The Hannibal Central School District Board of Education believes it has the leadership in place to fulfill its mission of helping students develop excellence through cooperative involvement with school personnel, parents, peers and the community.

During a Dec. 11 meeting, school board members voiced their support for Superintendent Donna Fountain as they conducted her mid-year review. Board members indicated that they believed in Fountain’s leadership abilities and noted they have seen noticeable gains in the district during her tenure.

As part of the evaluation process, board members took into account a variety of factors and assessed how well Fountain did in meeting the district’s goals.

“The (board) could state that she is meeting or has exceeded our goals,” said Board of Education President Erin Hess.

Amid the development of the district’s five-year strategic plan and with the Common Core learning modules taking hold, Fountain leads an administrative team that is helping shape the Hannibal Central School District for years to come.

“Her greatest strengths include visibility in district, leadership, direction and vision she has for the district,” Hess said, noting that the board supports her actions in propelling the district forward to a bright future.
