Transitional Leadership Team

Dear Springwater families,

We hope everyone is enjoying the final days of summer and the excitement that comes with the beginning of a new school year! 

We have wonderful news to share with you about our summer collaboration between the Board and Staff.   

This email is the first of a series of three announcements for you in the coming days.  Here, we are pleased to announce our Transitional Leadership Team for the 2018-2019 school year and their responsibilities during our leadership transition.  We also include here our Leadership points of contact on all school matters – contact information is below. 

Our next announcement will include the class lists and an exciting new teacher introduction. 

Our final announcement in this series will update you on our collaborative process of creating Springwater’s permanent leadership model for school year 2019-2020 and beyond.  We will also announce a schedule of Board Q & A Sessions and Community Outreach Events to discuss the school leadership models. 

TRANSITIONAL LEADERSHIP TEAM MEMBERS

We proudly announce our Transitional Leadership Team for school year 2018-2019:

* Katie Rasouli, Instructional & Community Coordinator (ICC)

* Jen Wozniak, ICC

* Heidi Blackwell, Transitional Support Specialist 

Dawn transitioned to an off-site advisor role supporting charter compliance and other operational duties, as needed.  She no longer handles on-site matters for our students, staff, or families.

RESPONSIBILITIES OF TRANSITIONAL LEADERSHIP TEAM & POINTS OF CONTACT

Katie, Jen, and Heidi share leadership responsibilities and serve complementary roles to each other.

Katie and Jen serve as the public face of the school.  They will be in the front office to handle all student and family matters including discipline, parent inquiries, family communication, staff support and facilitation (contract staff members), and emergencies.  Additionally, Katie and Jen are responsible for coordinating K-8 instruction, supporting teachers, and building community at Springwater.  Katie is on-site Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, and Jen is on-site Mondays and Fridays.  On Wednesdays, Jen continues to teach art and coordinates with Katie to ensure smooth co-leadership.

Heidi shares leadership responsibilities with Katie and Jen but has an emphasis on administrative duties.  Heidi provides charter compliance and operational support, including budgeting, scheduling, enrollment, policies, staff support and facilitation (non-contract staff), and other school-wide needs.  She also serves as a resource for families in a supporting role to Katie and Jen.   Heidi has a 1-year contract for her Transitional Support Specialist role. 

Heidi remains our Special Education lead and will be supported by a new part-time Instructional Assistant in Special Ed.  Heidi dedicates Mondays and Fridays to her administrative duties while reserving Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays for her Special Ed responsibilities.

Katie, Jen, and Heidi each report directly to the Board. 

Katie can be reached at: katie@springwaterschool.com.

Jen can be reached at: jen@springwaterschool.com.

Heidi can be reached at: heidi@springwaterschool.com.

CONCLUSION & QUESTIONS

Katie, Jen, and Heidi are working closely with each other and the Board during this transitional year to ensure that our Springwater community continues to thrive well into the future. 

Please contact any Board member, Katie, Jen, or Heidi with questions or feedback.  We welcome your input and look forward to many productive conversations with you this year. 

Warm regards,

The Springwater Board of Directors*, Katie, Jen, & Heidi

* Board President: Genevieve Scheesley & Board Members: Devon Sommer, Mali Geister, Tina Marquez, Tory Blackwell, Chelsea Hamilton, Cinda Scott, Justin Bearden, & Holly Johnston
