2019 saw some major changes at WSSDA. We onboarded new leaders to the WSSDA staff and WSSDA staff rolled out OnBoard for school directors. OnBoard is a professional learning system that will benefit WSSDA members for years to come. I’m proud of our staff for developing this tool and proud of our directors who have thrown themselves into it, starting at the 2019 annual conference.
But one of the things I’m most proud of is our membership’s commitment to educational equity. I’m so grateful for the work of the WSSDA board
to arrive at an equity statement, and then for our members to adopt it by unanimous vote at our delegate assembly. Our collective commitment to equity is not new, but I believe that making it explicit with a statement will bring tangible benefits to our children, communities, and even ourselves.
It has been an honor to serve as your association president. I believe that 2019 has built a new foundation for WSSDA to grow on. I look forward to seeing how we grow from here.
2019 WSSDA Board President
