WFISD Superintendent Profiled by American Association of School Administrators

Mike Kuhrt featured by AASA in a special report

The American Association of School Administrators has applauded Superintendent Mike Kuhrt for his passion and savvy in serving the District’s youngest students. He is one of three school district leaders at the helm of districts who are considered successful models of early learning environments; they are featured by AASA in a special report. Mr. Kuhrt is part of the AASA Early Learning Cohort – a consortium of superintendents who are researching ways to develop programs for early learners that will promote lasting change in children’s lives. Mr. Kuhrt said he is committed to overcoming the barriers that restrict learning for 3- to 5-year-olds. Those barriers include hunger, access to health care or lack of steady work for the children’s parents. The profile highlighted WFISD’s Waterford UPSTART program and a summit that brought together many Wichita Falls social service organizations.
