Tim WinterDear South Kitsap Families,

I am excited to join the South Kitsap School District and serve as superintendent. Under the leadership of your School Board and previous Superintendent, Karst Brandsma, and with the support of staff, families, and the community, South Kitsap School District will continue to follow the vision of nurturing growth, inspiring achievement, and building community. 

I chose South Kitsap for many reasons. This is a great place, with great staff and students, and great things going on every day. We will honor the past and embrace the future as we continue to meet the needs of our students. There is a lot to be proud of here and the unique opportunities that are available to our students are part of what makes South Kitsap such a special place.

During my short time in South Kitsap, I’ve received a warm welcome and I’ve been immediately impressed with the caring and compassionate staff working in all areas of the District. I believe people are the #1 resource we have, and if we take care of the staff, they will provide the best educational experience for every student every day.

In my first year as superintendent, I will listen, learn, and lead as I get to know our students, staff, and community. There are exciting things on the horizon and I’m confident South Kitsap will be one of the top five school districts in the state. We will achieve success in all areas through a culture built on valuing people and creating the conditions for success.

Best wishes for a successful 2019-2020 school year!
