Dr. Carl Johnson, Superintendent

Welcome to the Sherrard School District, my name is Carl Johnson and I am happy to serve our community as the Superintendent. I am excited and blessed to have this amazing opportunity! The rich history of our district is apparent to all. From the halls of our schools have come graduates who lead industry, agriculture, government and the military. 
The Sherrard School District prides itself on providing a top-notch education, which includes outstanding faculty, staff, and facilities. All of this is made possible by the dedication and commitment of our families, working together with educators to provide the best possible experiences for our students. It is this true partnership that helps our students thrive.
The District's mission is to inspire, empower and prepare. Our goal is to have each and every student gain the skills needed to be a successful citizen and leader in today's ever-changing world. 
As a graduate of Sherrard, I am happy to be returning home. My fiancé Allison and I are looking forward to the relocation process as we plan for a new home. I have 4 wonderful children; Rachel, Lauren, Bennett and Ren, ranging in age from 25 to 15. We look forward to meeting everyone and supporting the educational endeavors of the district!
