From the desk of Superintendent Robinzine

Dear Thornton Fractional School District 215 Families,

At the general Board of Education meeting on January 23, 2024, I was provided with the distinct pleasure of being appointed as the Superintendent of Schools for the 2024-25 and 2025-2026 school years.  I am truly grateful for the opportunity to continue serving our students and to successfully educate them to be valuable members of society, no matter their career path. I began this journey with District 215 over 23 years ago as a student teacher, classroom teacher, track and field coach, assistant principal, principal, director, assistant superintendent, and interim superintendent. With this wealth of knowledge and experience, I look forward to years ahead in serving as superintendent.

With the 3rd quarter ending soon, I continue to stress the importance for parents/guardians to continually monitor their students’ academic progress via our PowerSchool Parent portal. We also encourage students to continue regulating their own progress daily and prepare diligently to be successful on their upcoming final exams. As always, I encourage parent/guardians to feel free to contact their student's teachers with any questions and/or concerns.

Parents and guardians, in addition, the school district recognizes that parental and family involvement is essential to the success of every student in our school district. When your expectations of your student’s behavior parallel those of the school, we know that our students achieve more and have a positive educational experience. Thus, we remain committed to creating a welcoming environment for all families. If you have a concern, it is always important to address that concern at the building level first. Please do not hesitate to reach out to your child’s teachers and administrators and explore our district website (tfd215.org) to learn more about the great things occurring in Thornton Fractional High School District 215 and how you can engage in our school activities.

As always, I am dedicated to continuing our partnership in achieving our mission of “providing diverse learning opportunities that inspire all students to become life-long learners who contribute to their community.” Our school district thrives because of this collective effort, focus and commitment of our Thornton Fractional High School students, staff, board of education members, parents, and community partners. I look forward to the work we will continue to accomplish this school year, and I am humbled and grateful to serve as superintendent of such an extraordinary district.

Yours in Education,
