Three area school districts have new superintendents this year. The Courier reports Mark Kowalski at Liberty-Benton, Tony Fenstermaker at McComb and Jeff Young at Riverdale are all preparing for the first day of school this week. They all also have big goals for the coming year.

All three tell the newspaper student achievement is their top priority. Aside from that Kowalski said his personal goal is to “be visible” and engage with community members. Fenstermaker says right now is a good time to get familiar with the district’s process. Young cited professional development opportunities for Riverdale teachers as a goal for his tenure.
