Dr. John Frossard

What do you know about BISD’s past and how it will help you move forward?

I think I need to understand it to move forward, but a lot of it is in the area of finance, and the Board of Managers has been working on that over the course of the past year, and I’ll certainly continue with that.

We need to get the finances stabilized so we can develop our strategic plan and align our plan to move forward.
