Meet the Superintendent

Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! 
We are excited to begin a new school year.  As we prepare to end this decade, we look forward to partnering with families, with each other, and with the community to inspire and prepare our students to live creative, fulfilling, and responsible lives. 

We are continually sharpening our efforts to meet the changing needs of ECASD’s children and teens.  We want our students and you to know that we are united in helping them to learn and to grow in a safe, secure, and positive learning environment.

When I visit schools, I see how our teachers and principals create learning environments that help this to happen each day for students.   Their efforts and those of the entire ECASD staff help each student to experience the difference caring adults make in the lives of young people.

On behalf of the over 1,400 employees who work in ECASD, I send you our very best wishes for a successful school year.  I hope it is one that is filled with the joy of learning for all of us in ECASD.

Mary Ann Hardebeck, Ed. D.
