Superintendent Doering, Welcomes You

Dear Colleagues, Parents, Students and Community Members,


I am humbled and honored to carry on the legacy of Crane’s excellence as I collaboratively engage with others on our relentless pursuit of excellence. We have so much to celebrate as we enter another school year with our; academic excellence, nurturing culture and integral involvement in this fine community. Crane is categorically one of the finest school districts in the state, and I am proud to serve as your Superintendent alongside a dedicated, passionate and courteous staff.


Providing our school leadership with the support they need to successfully deliver academic excellence for the students will continue to be a priority. I am committed to fostering a rigorous, engaging, dynamic teaching and learning environment for our students with a solid sense of belonging.


Let me emphasize my appreciation of you, the Crane community. Our home-to-school partnership is strong and your ongoing commitment, and participation in the education of your child is both welcomed and valued. I urge you to become, or continue to be, actively involved in our schools. Whether it is involvement in the parent-teacher organizations, participating in a work project, helping at a school event or serving on a committee, there will be many ways for you to be of service. I invite you to become an engaged community member in our District and help make a positive difference for our children. You can stay up-to-date with the events at your child’s school by visiting their school’s websites and following them on social media through Twitter and Facebook. As always, please check out the district’s website for important information regarding the various services that we provide to help ensure your child’s success. These are all opportunities to connect with us and see why we are “Leaders in Learning.”

Laurie Doering
