Superintendent / Special Education Director
Reedsport School District #105
I was hired as the part-time superintendent/special education director (.80FTE) to oversee a district that was struggling in a variety of areas. From fraud in its business department to under-performing schools. Unfortunately the school board could not develop effective goals for our work and was expecting full-time commitment but only willing to pay for 80% of the position. I resigned when we could not come to agreement on work hours, goals for the position and the definition f Ethical leadership.
- Carried out an analysis of the Central Office support services structure working with two board members. We worked with staff to identify personnel strengths, training. requirements, and formulated a cost reduction program that increased service provision by 20 hours per week.

- As Special Education Director I supported a new administrator of a Focus School in the proper allocation of SPED personnel and implementation of Oregon’s Response to Instruction and Intervention (ORTIi) protocols.
