From the Desk of Dr. Ward,I consider it bittersweet that I announce my intent to depart from Clarksville I.S.D. within the next few weeks. Bittersweet simply because I have spent 5 years in this wonderful place where I have grown a high sense of attachment to the students and their families. Clarksville I.S.D., the board, you, the students and the community have been supportive of me from day 1. In addition to making friends that often felt like family, the four full years that I have been here we have together done the right work and accomplished things that no one gave us a chance to do. Succinctly, Clarksville is in a better place financially, academically, and in a few months will be equipped with updated facilities. The entire community should be proud of that. There still is yet so much to do in each of those areas however. My last day here is not scheduled to be until the very front end of December. I will work co-jointly with the board to ensure a smooth transition of leadership for the benefit of all invested stakeholders within C.I.S.D. This announcement is indeed a day late yet only do to my preference to deliver this news face to face to my staff instead of with an email or facebook announcement.
