Hidden Hero Spotlight | James H. Crutcher, Jr

Alexandra KincaidNews

This week we are spotlighting James H. “Jim” Crutcher, Jr!

Mr. Crutcher is a School Safety Liason and works with SROs and building administrators to ensure buildings are safe. This is his second year in this role. He has also coached track for DPS since 2015.

This year, Mr. Crutcher was also tasked with developing and leading a team to create an attendance plan to help schools implement procedures to improve student attendance. The group consisted of principals, Truancy team members, Positive School Climate coaches and others. The plan is now being used at schools to help boost attendance!

Mr. Crutcher said the best part about his job is getting to work with students on a regular basis.

Although COVID-19 changed his job, he said it has been a great learning experience because he had to take on other roles and responsibilities and now has a better understanding of what his colleagues do each day.

He said the best part about having students back in person is seeing how excited they are to once again be with their friends and teachers. He said he is looking forward to seeing how much students will grow and achieve throughout the rest of the school year.

Thank you for all you do to help students continue to succeed!
