Greetings Keidan Parents and Guardians,

It is with great pleasure that I write this letter as the newly appointed Principal of Keidan Special Education Center. I am truly honored and humbled to be afforded such an opportunity to work with exceptional students at Keidan. I have worked in several areas of special education and am excited to continue in its path. I am grateful that I have served as the Assistant Principal of Keidan because it allowed me the opportunity to build relationships with staff, students, parents, and the community.

As the school’s Principal, it is important that you feel welcome and excited to have your child enter our doors every day at Keidan. It encourages staff to provide a positive and caring environment to our Rising Stars. I will continue to encourage staff to provide academic excellence and best practices in teaching and learning to all students throughout the school year. Teachers will use data to drive instruction in an effort for all students to increase academic achievement. It is my priority to work diligently with teachers to make sure our students are exposed to curriculum and instruction that is creative, engaging, and challenging.

Please feel free to call or email me to discuss any concerns you might have throughout the school year. I will maintain an open-door policy and welcome your input and ideas. I look forward to working with you as a team to help each student at Keidan Special Education Center meet their goals, build relationships, feel connected, and have a new, exciting, and successful school year!



Rusan M. Weems, Ed.S.
