Keith made our school safe by systematizing our safety procedures. He took this job seriously and it resulted in a solid plan for all emergency and safety situations and drills. He created maps, emergency procedures and ‘go bags’ so our school safety team was prepared for any scenario. It’s hard to think of any aspect at our school that Keith didn’t touch. From class groupings to building spreadsheets, to analysis of SOL scores, he was the person for the job. Above and beyond all the actual tasks he accomplished, he also accomplished becoming the heart of our school. He put our school and staff firmly on his shoulders and cared deeply for every single staff member, student and family. As you know, [2020] was a horrendous year, but Keith managed to hold us together. ( excerpt)
