Reading Eagle: Harold Hoch | Warren F. Mata, superintendent of the Schuylkill Valley School District, addresses one of several questions fired at the assembled panel.

Warren F. Mata has to administer the state's education laws, but that doesn't mean he supports the standardized testing occurring in the school district or the pressure those tests put on students, teachers and administrators.
"As a dad and a grandpa, I would certainly consider these options for my children," Mata said of opting out of the standardized tests.

Schuylkill Valley Superintendent says, Im committed to this community and school district; Dr. Mata responds after error printed in Item

The headline incorrectly stated that Schuylkill Valley welcomes a new superintendent, when, in fact, Superintendent Dr. Warren F. Mata has been in the position for three years and says he is committed to Schuylkill Valley School District.
Im not going anywhere, said Mata during a recent interview with the Item. I love what I do here at Schuylkill Valley and I feel a commitment to the Schuylkill Valley kids and families.
His son, daughter-in-law and grandson live in Schuylkill Valley. Mata see his position as a stewardship to the community and his family.
I see this work as doing all of the things I can to make this an attractive place for families to come, to know that their kids get a really solid education and we do it in a way that makes sense financially for the community, said Mata.
According to the school website http://www.schuylkillvalley.org/, Dr. Warren F. Mata has been the superintendent of the Schuylkill Valley School District since July 1, 2012. Prior to coming to Schuylkill Valley, Dr. Mata served as the assistant superintendent with the Exeter Township School District. Dr. Mata also served previously as an elementary school and middle school principal in the School District of Springfield Township and as an elementary school principal with the Bethlehem Area School District. He began his work in public education as an instrumental and choral music teacher.
Looking back at the past three years, Mata said, Some of the things I feel really good about is we spent a lot of time, quietly but persistently, around safe procedures for the kids, to be sure that we have the appropriate safe guards in place.
Small things he said people may not notice are the cameras throughout the buildings. There is also a more secure way for when visitors want to come into the buildings.
Our protocols before were probably not as tight and maybe they didnt need to be as tight before, but now we have clear protocols around that, he said.
Mata also discussed technology in education. He said the district just upgraded the fiber optic backbone and the security around the Internet structure and technology has been upgraded, providing much more capacity.
When kids begin to bring devices in we have the infrastructure, the capacity to manage that well, he said.
Were slowly getting that in place because we think that what we do with the ninth graders, as we move through, thats where we want to start, said Mata.
Looking forward, Mata discussed his goals.
One of the primary goals would be around technology. I dont want to do technology just for the bells and whistles... Id rather have our teachers think long and hard about how can I do things with technology that I couldnt do before. Do it for the value add proposition rather than just to say Im doing it. That approach takes a long time, said Mata.
Theres been a good group of people who have steadfastly worked on a stadium renewal, a stadium project, a stadium campaign, said Mata.
In the future, Mata wants to be able to leave behind a legacy, that Schuylkill Valley effectively integrated technology, upgraded the stadium and preserved the quality of education that our teachers so graciously provided and that is a hallmark of this district.
Discussing the anxiety and agitation around state testing, Mata said he wants teachers to know that what they do everyday is much more valuable than whatever could be measured by anything like the state testing.
Our teachers care deeply about our kids, said Mata.
As all of the other stuff may come crashing down in around state testing and teacher accountability and all of the agitation about how public schools are not serving our kids well, we are serving our kids well, said Mata. I want our teachers to know deeply that I respect and that our board respects that steadfast work that theyre doing. Thats really important to me.
Mata said he has a personal and professional stake in the community.
What I love about this community is ... that there is a real place for kids to grow up in this community, said Mata.
