John M. Haswell

My name is John Haswell and my personal mission is to provide a safe, respectful and positive learning environment where staff and students feel comfortable coming to school everyday.

I am very excited to be the leader of our great school district. I pledge to spend the remainder of my professional career serving the students of our district. As a life long member of this community, as well as a 1983 graduate of Shadyside High School I have first hand knowledge of the pride the community has in our school district. I know the pride I have being an alumnus of our school.

Along with the board of education we sat down and developed six objectives as part of the Superintendent Evaluation System. These objectives are the guiding work for our district. They are as follows;

1. The superintendent shall develop a financial management plan to balance the budget by 2015 and eliminate deficit spending.

2. The superintendent shall update the comprehensive district safety plan addressing risk and/or emergency issues.

3. The superintendent shall create a work plan to build a positive working relationship with all district employees.

4. The superintendent shall develop a plan to provide the appropriate amount of mental health service for all students

5. The superintendent shall plan for a safe and functionally sound facilities in order to offer a 21st century curriculum.

6. The superintendent shall upgrade all curriculum areas to meet all new standards.

Some changes coming to the district in SY14-15 are the hiring of new staff which include Mr. Michael Coyne, Special Education High School and Leona, and Ms. Amy Games Spanish Teacher.

We continue to make upgrades to our facilities through utilization of Permanent improvement funds as well as donations. These include; A new gym floor and bleachers as well as a new roof over the shop and band room. We are renovating the 1957 section of the High School knowing that we will utilize it with any future building plans we have. We have painted several rooms and halls throughout the district.

It is my goal to continue to partner with the community and make Shadyside Schools as successful as possible. Please do not hesitate to contact my office if you have a comment, suggestion, or concern.
