This article profiles Cashton (Wisconsin) Public Schools Superintendent Brad Saron. Saron has always had a passion for technology. He has brought his personal passion for technology to bear in his job as superintendent of the 584-student Cashton Public Schools. As a principal and then as superintendent, he introduced iPod Touches, iPads, wireless Internet, document cameras, SMART Boards and laptops into classrooms at Cashton Public Schools. Technology isn't the only area that the 35-year-old Saron has transformed within the district. From building "cardio" fitness centers to expanding summer school, Saron is bringing fresh ideas of all sorts to rural schooling. As principal, he embarked on a series of academic reforms, including altering the high school course sequence so that students take physics in their freshman year. Cashton Public Schools also trains teachers in the use of technology by brining in outside consultants to do professional development. He has advocated for more school time for remediation and enrichment activities. Health and wellness of the community is another major concern for Saron.
