2024-25 Superintendent's Entry Plan

Dear North Thurston Public Schools Community,

It is great enthusiasm that I present my entry plan as your new superintendent. This document outlines the steps I will take in my first six months in the role to deepen my knowledge of the district and community.

Spending time in schools and with community partners will build a strong foundation of learning about our district and school relationships. Strong community partnerships are essential to our district’s success. I will spend time in individual and small group conversations, and engage in a listening tour that includes visits to each of our 24 schools as well as public community meetings.

In January, I will share with the NTPS Board of Directors my reflections and a proposed action plan grounded in what I have learned from the community. The action plan will build on the district’s strengths and will support our continuing success.

I look forward to this opportunity to listen and learn from you. Please reach out any time to share your thoughts!


Troy M. Oliver
