• Dear Hoke County Schools families,

    Many thanks to the Board of Education of Hoke County Schools for their unanimous support for providing me the opportunity to serve as Interim Superintendent. What an incredible honor and responsibility!  Having served in Hoke County Schools for 17 years, I can think of no greater honor than being asked to lead our district during this transition. 

    As an educator for over 20 years, I am committed to our future–the children.  My educational philosophy is “A child doesn’t care how much you know until he/she knows how much you care”. This philosophy is ingrained in my leadership as I make decisions to serve the needs of our children and stakeholders.  Therefore, we must keep students at the heart of everything we do.   

    While serving as Interim Superintendent, I will maintain an open-door communication practice and make myself accessible to all stakeholders.  I will answer questions, respond to concerns, and initiate future meetings with the community in order to build positive relationships and garner support for our schools. This will be done with the goal of establishing effective communication and demonstrating an eagerness to be responsive to the needs and suggestions for improvement. Valuing your input is critical for student achievement and the overall success of Hoke County Schools. Together, we can cultivate a supportive climate where educators inspire, families engage, community trust and every student reaches his/her fullest potential.

    You are invited to be an active part of our collaboration at the school and district levels. Together, we will make decisions and take actions that are in the best interest of students. I look to your understanding, patience, and support as we navigate through this leadership transition. I am optimistic about what we can accomplish working together.

    With Gratitude,

    Dr. Shannon Register
