I would like to take a few moments of you time to introduce myself to those of you that don’t already know me. I am Ray Maestas. I am a graduate and product of the Clayton Schools. Just recently, I was appointed to serve as Interim Superintendent for your school district for the 2020-2021 school year. I am very excited and honored to be given this great opportunity. Although my career in education has taken too many different school districts, Clayton has always been my home and where my heart lies. With that in mind, I would like to assure all of you that as your district’s Interim Superintendent, students will always be the priority and focus of the Clayton Schools. Together with the district’s school staff, we will work hard to provide the students with a high level education that will prepare them to reach their life goals as productive adults in our society. Decisions made at the school district will always be made in the best interest of our students and school staff. I would encourage the Clayton community to help support the school district in any way possible. The students of this community are the future of our existence. It is our responsibility and duty to assure that our students receive the best education and support needed to become successful in their future endeavors. Thank you.
