President Johnson: The vote of the Board of Education to renew and extend the superintendent’s contract this evening reflects the gratitude of the Board for her consistent, quality leadership over time, faith in the continuing work of Superintendent Swift, and our optimism about the future of the Ann Arbor Public Schools. 

Superintendent Swift: I deeply appreciate the support of the Board of Trustees in extending our commitment to each other, and look forward to continuing our work together to serve the teachers and staff, students, parents of the Ann Arbor Public Schools and the Ann Arbor community.

As we look ahead to our work during 2020 and beyond, we know this will prove a time of both unprecedented challenge and unparalleled opportunity for our AAPS organization, our Ann Arbor community, our country and our world. We are committed to continue to innovate, learn and grow together through these current challenges to achieve our critical mission to serve every child, every day. The Ann Arbor Public Schools will continue to serve as a top-quality public school district, long known for excellence in education across Michigan and around the world.
