Superintendent Kingsley's remarks at the May 24 board meeting

During the May 24, 2022, Poudre School District Board of Education of meeting, Superintendent Brian Kingsley spoke about grief and asked for a moment of silence for the students and staff who died in the May 24, 2022, shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas. He articulated district values and said we cannot, as a district and society, complain about the things we tolerate. And he expressed a call to action for individuals in our communities to listen to and work together on solutions that will continue improving PSD for our students. "We have a chance to be different," he said. PSD wants to be different, and "I love that," he said.

A message of gratitude

As your new superintendent, I want to convey my gratitude and humility for the ability to partner with you.

My family and I are incredibly excited to be in Northern Colorado and become a part of the PSD community. I look forward to listening, learning and leading with you. I can’t wait to meet you and hear your thoughts.

Poudre School District is strong – the product of your service, deep engagement and commitment to ensuring that we Educate... Every Child, Every Day. We have a significant responsibility to work as a team to ensure that our young people have the opportunities they deserve to grow into their best selves. Education is, after all, all about connections – those among students, teachers, staff, coaches, families and community members – that enrich and elevate the lives of others


Public education changed my life trajectory and filled me with hope, love, confidence and a sense of belonging. It was where my beliefs solidified regarding the role of education in people’s lives.

With our staff, I will promote collaboration and communication among all stakeholders in this community. We will strive to build and deliver exceptional educational experiences every day for all students. 

With empathy and transparency, I will work with you, side by side, to make sure that our goals for students become a reality. This work will be rooted in three equity-centered commitments and core values: visionary district leadership, inclusive district culture and instructional excellence. Moving forward as a community, it will take all of us working in tandem to effectively allocate our time, people and resources in ways that align with the goal of achievement for all students. 

I am excited to move forward together.

With appreciation, 

Brian Kingsley
