Principal's Message

 

EC Parents/Guardians,

Year after year, I continue to be inspired by the unwavering support and understanding this community offers to our students, staff, and school. Your grace and positive/encouraging spirit are truly why East Central High School remains "the" top school in Southeast Indiana and one of the top schools in the state. We continue to offer a wide range of opportunities along with rigorous preparation for our students... your children. From dual credit opportunities through Indiana University, Vincennes University, Ball State, and Ivy Tech as well as ever increasing Career and Technical opportunities at the Southeastern Career Center and here on campus, to our Gold level ISSMA programs in the performing arts and our well-recognized and decorated visual arts, to our highly successful and competitive athletic teams, EC is a school/family in which we can all take great pride. As I enter year seven with you and your children, my mission remains... to maintain the levels of success that you all expect for your kids and to always focus on making connections, keeping kids safe, and providing the best opportunities for our students.

As a servent leader, trust and communication continue as core values. Know that I remain readily accessible to both you and your student(s) whatever the need, and though we may not always agree in the end... I have and will always be respectfully honest. With the many changes from the state in recent years, our staff will continue to work diligently ensuring that every student has a path to success and a niche within our walls where they feel respected, accepted, and appreciated. The following points of emphasis continue to be the basic components of every successful high school, remain a focus of our School Improvement Plan, and are well defined goals within state expectations. To the best of our ability, we will:
  •     Ensure a safe and secure learning environment,
  •     Prioritize academic growth and success
  •     Provide college and career access and exploration, and  
  •     Focus on an inclusive environment and a positive school culture

Know that you can count on consistent and clear communication between students, staff, and community regarding mission, vision, successes, hopes, and desires. As a part of our Strategic Plan, our commitment to best-practices and alignment across content areas continues so that we can ensure academic success and, even moreso, growth and improvement as a part of our desire to be counted among the best high schools in the State of Indiana.

Lastly, as I've shared before, please know how thankful I am to be here with your student(s), this staff, and this community. This truly IS a great place because of your support for your kids, this staff and this school. I take great pride in what we have done and what we continue to do to support and encourage students to find success in whatever they choose. As always...WE ARE... EC!

Respectfully,

Tom Black, Principal
