Superintendent Dr. Marcus Nelson

New Superintendent Dr. Marcus Nelson outlined his expectations and goals for campus administrators Monday at Waco ISD’s Leadership Institute, promising them “Kids will rise to meet our expectations.”

Nelson told more than 100 Principals, Assistant Principals and department heads at the workshop “the focus every day should be to amaze people with your service and performance.”

He asked those district leaders to help improve the culture of Waco ISD, and promised doing that will outshine any strategy.

Nelson was the main speaker at the first day of that 3-day event at Baylor’s Research and Innovation Collaborative. That group moves to Bell’s Hill Elementary Tuesday and Wednesday.

Other elements of the program include reviewing legislative changes to the education process, updates on the student code of conduct, and safeguards in processes for operations, finance, ethics and communications.
