Superintendent Winfred Roberson has announced the leaders of the four action teams that will begin their work as part of the school district’s strategic planning process this week.
The process began with a three-day meeting of the Strategic Planning Committee in late September, which crafted four strategy statements that will be researched by four action teams.
The team leaders are:
* Andrea Thomas, an English learner specialist at Patwin Elementary School who also handles professional development planning and training at the district level. David Miller, a business owner and parent of students at the elementary, junior high and high school levels, will be the support member.
* Kenneth Durham, vice principal of Emerson Junior High, and the school district’s manager of student support services. Lori Duisenberg, president of the Davis Schools Foundation, will be the support member.
* Cathy Haskell, a teacher at King High School and former president of the Davis Teachers Association. Clark Bryant, associate superintendent for instructional services and elementary education and a parent of two students, will be the support member.
* Tom McHale, vice principal at Davis High School and a parent. Martha Beetley, a retired educator who taught in local elementary schools for 23 years, will be the support member.
The action teams will hold their first meetings Wednesday at Davis High School, and will prepare documents making recommendations covering a five-year time frame that will be forwarded to the full Strategic Planning Committee in February.
After review and consideration by the Strategic Planning committee, these recommendations will then be sent on to the school board for consideration and discussion in March.
