ANDERSON, Ind. —
Those factors can be reflected in students, he said, and the school system should acknowledge related problems and offer support to families.
“We have a lot of socioeconomic factors that spill over into education,” he said. “And what that means is the population needs a lot of support from the schools and the teachers. They’re important issues for us to address.”
Though Edsell’s position is temporary, he said he wants to leave an impression during his administration, and would like to take over full time. The day he was hired, school board president Jean Chaille said Edsell would have the opportunity to earn the position outright during the interim period.
Edsell wants to focus on classroom data analysis and communication between teachers and administrators. Touting his strong background in math, he said he would focus on fiscal responsibility and budgetary solutions for the school district.
“There are great initiatives already in place that I want to sustain,” he said. “After the interim period, I want us to demonstrate strong communication skills and a strong ability to collaborate between teachers and parents.”
