Sarah Pritchett, principal of McClure Middle School (19151 First Ave. W.), has been appointed as the new executive director of schools for the Central Region.
Pritchett will support the principals and schools in the central region of the city with responsibilities that include coaching principals, coordinating professional development for principals and teachers, strengthening systems for monitoring and using student data, and conducting frequent learning walks in the schools.
She has been principal at McClure Middle School since 2007, during which time McClure has twice been named a Washington State School of Distinction. Previously, she served as assistant principal at Rose Hill Junior High in Redmond, Wash., as house administrator at Seattle’s Mercer Middle School and as middle-school re-entry teacher at Sharples Alternative School, also in the District.
Pritchett replaces Nancy Coogan, who is leaving the district to take over as superintendent of the Tukwila School District.[[In-content Ad]]
