Dr. Rebecca Miner
It is hard to imagine that October is already here but the cooler, shorter days and turning leaves remind us that autumn is fully here.
An incredible amount of exciting work geared toward teaching and learning has already happened this year and I am thrilled to be supporting our work together this year in Edmonds.
Over the summer and in early fall, the Board worked very hard and spent a lot of time reflecting in order to develop and align their goals with the work of the strategic plan. My goals were in turn linked to theirs. We now have a very clear alignment between the strategic plan, the school improvement plans, the board goals and my goals. This alignment will provide clarity of purpose to our decision making and our work this year.
In addition this year, we will be contracting with an outside entity (American Institutes for Research) to conduct a review of our special education program. You can read more about that review here. I look forward to engaging many staff members as we seek to learn in order to improve our system.
I’m trying to go to as many events as I can and I hope that if you see me somewhere, that you will introduce yourself to me. I love hearing about peoples’ experiences and hopes for the district.
