Though the first day of school is more than one month away, Grand Island school districts are already starting to see new faces walking through the halls.
Two Grand Island school districts are seeing a change in leadership this year.
"I decided to take on two roles and just fulfill them both this year and see how it goes. I've done that before and it's worked well, so I'm ready for the challenge," Steve Osborn says.
Osborn is filling the roles of Superintendent and Principal at Grand Island Central Catholic, while Matt Fisher has taken over as Superintendent at Grand Island Northwest.
This is Fisher's first official full week on the job, but Osborn has been in his office since early June.
Both Superintendents say adjusting to their new positions will take some time.
"Basically what I've been doing is meeting a lot of people, of course, and getting used to the place, used to the building," Osborn says. "I'm meeting teachers as they come and go, getting on the computer, finding where all the files are."
Fisher says he's still getting a feel for the school and community, as well as crunching numbers and looking over the budget.
For Northwest, adjusting the budget and preparing for the school's one-to-one iPad program are Fisher's top priorities.
"The one-to-one iPads this year is a big push this year, so I'm trying to make sure we have everything in place as we do that," Fisher says.
Osborn says he's not sure yet what he'll choose to focus on.
"Being new to the system, I haven't seen it in action yet, I haven't seen it full of kids, full of teachers, with education taking place," Osborn says, "so right away, no major changes until I see how it works."
For now, their work is behind-the-scenes, and both superintendents say they won't get a full taste of the job until school starts up in August.
