October is upon us! Not only does that mean that we are entering the glorious Fall season, replete with pumpkin spice everything, but that also means that I have officially been with the Nevada Department of Education for a full year!Just one year ago, I joined the Title I Team as the new Title I, Part D State Coordinator, a program I still hold near and dear to my heart.
We have had some movement in OSSS.As part of an ongoing commitment to equity, Karl Wilson’s team is now focused on Special Populations. In addition to serving our EL, immigrant, and migrant students, the Special Populations Team will also include Homeless Education. Dr. Pam Juniel (McKinney-Vento) and Vern Hee (ARP-HCY) will continue to serve Homeless Education, only now they will be on the Special Populations Team rather than the Title I Team.Please see below for an updated chart for which NDE program lead will be supporting your LEA with these exciting new changes:
