Message from the Superintendent

  • shon hockerIt is an exciting time to be part of Coeur d’Alene Public Schools. It is my great honor to serve as your superintendent. The Coeur d’Alene School District is family. There is no better place in which to learn, work and belong. Thank you for your commitment, dedication and partnership as we strive to do our very best for all children.

    We need your help with envisioning a future of education for our students that is yet to be defined. It has been reported that 85% of the jobs that will exist in 2030 haven’t even been invented yet. I’m asking each of you to embrace a culture of change. Ask Why. Encourage students to ask Why. Encourage our young learners to take ownership in their learning. This ownership comes when we offer personalized approaches to our students. When our students own their learning, the sky's the limit when it comes to achievement.

    For our students to be well prepared for learning, careers and life after high school, they need a school system that is committed to putting the needs of the learner front and center. Our incredible staff, teachers, administrators and School Board are committed to creating a powerful culture of learning and a sense of belonging for each and every student.

    Together, this year promises to be a great year. Have a great year, and once again, thank you for being part of our family.

    Dr. Shon Hocker / Superintendent
