Message from Superintendent Archibald
Dear SLCS Community,
The 2023-24 school year is off to a positive and exciting start throughout the district. It
remains a distinct privilege for me to be afforded the opportunity to lead such a dynamic
school community deeply committed to providing excellent educational opportunities for
This is my fourth year with South Lyon Community Schools after serving over thirty years
as a teacher, building and district leader with Livonia Public Schools. I have been a
resident of the community since August 2016 when my family, including my wife and two
daughters, relocated to New Hudson. We have thoroughly enjoyed making this
community our home and love being a part of the SLCS family.
I am a firm believer that the quality of our district is only as good as our people. Each
and every student, staff member, and family in the district has responsibilities that
impact the educational experience of our students. Together, we make SLCS a strong
and prominent district for the students and families we serve!
It is also important to know the foundational values on which this great district stands.
These values reflect and honor a sense of community, a collaborative spirit, and a
commitment to providing a quality educational experience for all students. I trust that our
entire school community will continue to work together to successfully meet the current
and future challenges on behalf of the students entrusted in our care.
In closing, I want to reiterate what an honor it is for me to be serving the SLCS
community as the Superintendent of Schools. Thank you to all who help support our
students, our staff, and our schools to be the best we can be each and every day!
Steven P. Archibald
Superintendent of Schools
