Dear City Schools Staff, Families and Partners,
I want to take this opportunity to tell you how honored and happy I am to serve as the new Chief Executive Officer of Baltimore City Public Schools. As a Baltimore City resident and a proud City Schools mother, I am committed to our mission of providing all of Baltimore’s students with the knowledge and support they need to be successful and fulfill their purpose.
I recognize the challenges we face, and I realize the amount of work that needs to be done. At the same time, I know that we have the full support of the Board, our elected officials, our families, and every person of good will in the City of Baltimore. I have full confidence in the dedication and commitment of our classroom teachers, school leaders, and the staff of City Schools. Most importantly, I have no doubt in the ability of our students to excel.
Our children cannot wait, and we cannot allow any obstacle to stand in their way. We have this moment to do this work, but we can only succeed if we commit ourselves – as a school system, as a community, as a city – to work together with single-minded purpose for the benefit of our students. They deserve the best that we have to give, in order to prepare them to realize the excellence that each and every one of them is capable of achieving.
I am grateful and humbled by the opportunity to return to Baltimore City Public Schools, and I look forward to helping our children develop the skills to be successful in school and throughout their lives. I invite your collaboration, and I thank you for your support and active engagement in this great work.
Sonja B. Santelises, Ed.D.
Chief Executive Officer
