Education Week's 2015 Leader to Learn From for Expertise in District Finances

"Education Week’s annual Leaders To Learn From report shines a light on forward-thinking district leaders who seize on good ideas and execute them well in their school systems. In school districts across the country, education leaders are using innovative strategies to improve curriculum and instruction, address management challenges, stretch resources, engage parents and communities, utilize new technologies effectively, and create optimal learning environments that prepare all students for success beyond their K-12 years. By telling their stories, and sharing their challenges and successes along the way, we hope that other educators in the nation’s 14,000-plus districts will learn from their experiences and be inspired to “discover, aspire, and lead” in their own school systems." -- Education Week
