Patrick Mayer took over as the superintendent of Wrangell schools July 1, 2014.

Mayer said one of the main goals for this year is to prepare students for new state assessments in the spring.

“But, of course, our ultimate goal here, from my perspective as an educator, is always how do we raise student achievement and maximize student achievement, and opportunities for them?” Mayer said.

Mayer also said he is impressed by the huge amount of parent support for students in Wrangell.

“I see a very community-oriented, family-oriented location in Wrangell,” Mayer said.

Mayer worked as a high school principal in Delta Junction before moving to Wrangell.
