Dear Butler Area School District Community,

I hope you had a wonderful summer and are looking forward to the upcoming 2022-2023 school year.

I am excited to share our annual Welcome Back publication with you. You can click here to view it on our website.

Our campuses are already coming alive with practices, rehearsals, meetings, and new students and families visiting to register. There is an energy and excitement to the start of the school year that is hard to describe. For each of our students, it is an opportunity for a fresh start, an opportunity to learn new things and an opportunity to build relationships.

Relationships are really important for our students to learn, grow and thrive. Research shows us that students who develop relationships and feel connected to school are typically more successful. It’s not just important for our students to have positive relationships, it’s important for us as adults to model positive relationships. Therefore, I encourage all of us – students, employees, families and community members – to deliberately engage with each other for the betterment of all of our students.

We have been working diligently to implement our new school organization structure.  More information on that and the progress of our construction can be found in the Welcome Back publication. Like any change, we will face some challenges as we start the school year. I apologize upfront for any inconveniences you experience and thank you for being patient with us.

As we head into a new school year, we remain committed to providing a safe and supportive environment for all students to learn and grow. Since many staff members changed building assignments as a result of the new school organization, all staff will participate in safety training during our opening professional development days. We also anticipate having safety drills with our students in the school year.

We have many exciting things to look forward to in the 2022-2023 school year. I appreciate all of the volunteers who have helped and who are helping make so many things possible for our students. The engagement that our families, community members and employees have demonstrated is truly unique and something to be celebrated.  

Schools exist to serve students. If you have information or insights regarding your child that will help us serve children more effectively, I encourage you to share it with your building principal, teacher or school counselor. We want you and your student(s) to have a great school year.

I am excited for the upcoming year! I look forward to seeing all of the amazing things our students do. Thank you for all that you do to support our students and our schools. And, most importantly, thank you for allowing us to be a part of your child’s life!

Sincerely,


Brian J. White, Jr., Ed.D.
