Curriculum, Instruction and Accountability

Welcome to Williston School District 29!

Welcome to the Department of Curriculum, Instruction, and Accountability.  I joined Williston School District in July 2016 and I have been excited to assist with the implementation of many new initiatives and strategies to raise student achievement in our district. 

The Director of Curriculum and Instructional coordinates all Federal Programs, State and Local Assessments, Professional Development Activities, District Pacing and Curriculum Documents, Textbooks,  Goals and Strategic Plans in the areas of curriculum and instruction.  As the Director, I work closely with all administrators and supervisors in the district to assist in the coordination of programs, implementation of policy and consistent practice.

I look forward to working with administrators and teachers as we focus on improving student achievement, enhancing teachers’ instruction, clarifying the state required curriculum, providing resources to our school based administrators, and planning for the future of Williston County Schools.
