Dear Edgewood Students, Parents, Staff and Community:

I would like to take this opportunity to say I am very honored to be the Superintendent of the Edgewood City School District. Our district is one of the finest school districts in the state. I have learned the “Cougar” tradition of excellence is due to the wonderful people of our community and the dedication of our students and staff alike.

As a former principal, teacher, and coach for twenty plus years, I deeply believe in a quality and comprehensive education for all students. Edgewood is known not only for its academic excellence and extracurricular programs, but also for the positive and healthy relationships between our schools and community. I take our commitment very seriously, that you have entrusted the young people of this community to our care with the expectation that our fine staff will give their best, day in and day out.

My mission, as Superintendent, is also my calling. It is the reason I do what I do. That is, to maintain and cultivate a rigorous teaching and learning environment that provides every student with a sense of belonging, while supporting students to grow intellectually, emotionally and socially. It is critical to every student’s success that they graduate from Edgewood High School with the skills necessary to pursue and achieve their goals and dreams.

Inspiring Minds Together,

Russ Fussnecker
