Supt. Menzel named to national board

Supt. Scott Menzel was named to the Association for Educational Service Agencies (AESA) Board of Directors. This is the message that Supt. Menzel communicated on being tapped to serve on the board:

"I believe Educational Service Agencies are uniquely positioned to facilitate connections on the cradle-to-career continuum. Specifically, we are a logical bridge between the early childhood community (birth through kindergarten entry) and the traditional K-12 schools. Additionally, we are positioned to help broker relationships to expand early/middle college options, dual enrollment, and expanded CTE options in partnership with community colleges, four-year colleges and universities as well as technical trade schools."

 "During my time on the board, I hope we can establish a process for connecting colleagues from across the country who are working in these areas, particularly the early childhood focus, so we can share best practices and also advocate with one voice for increased investments and appropriate policy to ensure every child has the opportunity and supports necessary to succeed in school and in life."
