Welcome to the Byron Public Schools!
My name is Jeff Elstad and I am excited to be the new superintendent in the Byron Public Schools. Before landing in Byron, I served as a middle school principal, assistant high school principal, director of special services, and special educator. I am entering my 19th year in public education and consider myself so fortunate to have the opportunity to shape our future every day.
The Byron Public schools is firmly grounded in the process of continuous improvement. It is deeply woven into the fabric of the school district. Recently, the Byron Public Schools were awarded the Advancement Level status by the Quality Council of Minnesota. This recognition is indicative of the quality, passionate, and committed staff that serve our children and community.
You will find a deep-seated feeling of community pride in our schools. This pride is evident in the excellence that is demonstrated by our students and staff through our academic, co-curricular and extra-curricular programs. The Byron Public Schools was recently recognized both at the state and national levels for our innovative and “out-of-the-box” approaches to delivering a quality curriculum such as, the “Flipped” Classrooms and Hybrid On-line courses that continue to prepare our students for a competitive global economy and community.
