Dr. Green Goes to School

Several Central Bucks schools put on special events Monday to welcome Dr. Rodney Green as new superintendent.

At Central Bucks West High School, he was greeted by the jazz band and welcome signs.

At Linden Elementary, the classroom doors were decorated with messages of welcome.

At Lenape Middle School, a banner was strung up in the hallway.

And on Monday, Dr. Rodney Green got his first taste of official life in the Central Bucks School District.

Green was hired in July to replace outgoing superintendent Dr. Robert N. Laws, who retired after 40 years in education and 20 years as Central Bucks superintendent.

Marking his first day at work, Green didn't waste any time getting to know the lay of the land at a few of the district's 23 schools.

The new superintendent told Doylestown Patch this summer that he is a fan of social media and planned to use it to connect with the Central Bucks community. On Monday, he took to Twitter to describe his visits to the schools.

"Here we go! First, ride the school bus to CB West. Visit Lenape and Linden. Meetings, open office hours, and communications comm. Excited!," he said. Then, later, "West. Lenape. And now Linden. Great people great students and great schools!"

Later Monday night, Green met with parents and others who signed up to chat with him in person. He is scheduled to hold another open house on Monday, Oct. 8, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. To see if any time slots are still available, call 267-893-2001.

As Green settles in, we want to know: what do you think his priorities should be? What issues do you feel should be brought to the forefront? Let us know in the comments.
