Seattle Schools Community Forum: Board of Education Struggles with 1240 Role

Seattle Schools Community Forum: Board of Education Struggles with 1240 Role:


Board of Education Struggles with 1240 Role

The State Board of Education had a two-day meeting last week in Tumwater to address various issues under their purview.   One of them is figuring out their role/duties and the boundaries of both under the newly-passed I-1240 to create charter schools in Washington State.

(I was also honored and pleased to meet Jeff Charbonneau, the Washington State Teacher of the Year from Zillah High School.  I want to write a separate thread on him and the great work they are doing there but boy, what a great guy and a great teacher.)

What came first before the discussion was a presentation by Alex Medler who works for the National 

Exeuctive Director to Leave Post

It appears that Executive Director of Schools for the SE Region, Bree Dusseault, will be leaving SPS. 

You may recall that Ms. Dusseault was the Executive Director pushing for Ingraham principal Martin Floe's dismissal.   Principal Floe kept his job and she was moved to the SE Region.

I was told she is taking a position with a charter group.

Honestly, not one surprise here and it's one fewer TFA person in this district.
