Day One with Dr. Carstarphen: From Morning Bus Routes to Afternoon Workout

By Scott King


Day One at APS started for Superintendent Meria J. Carstarphen early at the Lakewood Bus Depot. She wanted to make sure our school bus drivers got off to a great start for the 2015-2016 school year.

Her visit kicked off a near marathon school tour, which would take her to several schools in the district.


In our schools, Dr. Carstarphen got the word out that APS was ready to start the school year on the right foot.  This included making morning announcements, speaking with the news media, co-anchoring a school newscast and jumping into a lesson plan.


For Dr. Carstarphen, Day One was not limited to instruction as she closed the day with a practice with the South Atlanta Hornets football team.
