Michigan’s tenure reform initiatives have required school leaders to look for new solutions to measuring student and staff growth. At present, I collaborate with state and local leaders on developing and communicating about assessment policy and best practices. I have also represented school administrators on several evaluation and assessment workgroups since 2009 in the effort to shape and communicate education policy and practices regarding assessment, evaluation, and data metrics and analysis.
