Superintendent Message


Dear Grove Public Schools Students, Staff, Parents and Community Members:

I would like to take this opportunity to say I am honored and excited to be selected as your next Superintendent of Schools. I assure you that I appreciate the unique opportunity and the enormous responsibility that goes with the job. I am humbled and grateful to the Board members for placing their faith in me, and I intend to work in partnership with them in guiding this district forward.

I have had the opportunity to wear many hats in this district over my 25-year career, and those experiences have prepared me to lead our school district to meet the high expectations the community demands and our students deserve. Through my experiences, I have learned to appreciate the hard work of educators and support staff, and to value the strength of a unified Board and community.

My mission as your Superintendent is also my passion. To advocate and champion for our kids. My goal will always be to have the highest quality education system possible. One that promotes creativity, critical thinking, effective communication and lifelong learning.

If I can help you in any way, please don’t hesitate to email me at

Yours in education,

Pat Dodson
