Stefanic Returns to Garth as Principal

Damon Stefanic is the principal of Garth Elementary, again

They say home is where the heart is and, for Director of Human Resources Damon Stefanic, home is Garth Elementary School.  After serving Scott County Schools as HR director for the past two years, Stefanic will return to Garth as principal effective July 1. 

Superintendent Billy Parker and the Garth SBDM Council wasted no time taking action to bring Stefanic home.

“My time at Central Office has been rewarding and I have learned a lot in this position but I miss the students, staff, and community at Garth,” Stefanic reflected.  “When the role of principal came open, I knew there was no other place I’d rather be.”

“Garth Elementary is a special place for kids to dream and learn,” Stefanic continued, “I am very excited to be back!”

Stefanic previously served as administrative dean at Simmons Elementary in Woodford County and assistant principal at Painted Stone Elementary in Shelby County and was also a teacher at Georgetown Middle School.  He holds a Bachelor of Science degree from West Chester University and Masters of Arts degrees in both Educational Leadership and Gifted & Talented from Eastern Kentucky University.

Profile of a Learner

Students of all ages in Scott County will be effective and engaged communicators, respectful and accountable collaborators, resilient and creative problem solvers, empathetic and compassionate citizens, curious and adaptable learners, and confidant and responsible leaders.

Scott County Schools recently unveiled the Profile of Learner after months of work from students, parents, educators, district administrators, business leaders, and community members.  This guiding document will ensure graduates develop essential characteristics to prepare them for college, to support local economic development, and to thrive in the workforce of the future.

The University of Kentucky Center for Next Generation Leadership and the Scott County Schools Office of Student Learning spearheaded this important initiative.  Leaders from all facets of the community developed these key characteristics, their definitions, and the specific skill sets necessary for student success.  Thousands completed an accompanying survey making the project truly comprehensive.

The recent launch party was the culminating event of the work, revealing the image below that will be a center point of professional development and student instruction in Scott County for years to come.
