ABOUT THE SPEAKERS

During the six years that Pamela Moran has served as superintendent, Albemarle County Public Schools has continued a trajectory of excellence leading to recognition of its schools and departments as top performers across multiple performance measures. Dr. Moran takes pride in staff and community support to ensure that every learner has the opportunity to excel and embrace learning, which is key to the Division’s vision that all young people achieve future success after high school graduation. Despite the decrease in available revenues and increased enrollment, more Albemarle County students than ever graduate from high school. Achievement gaps have decreased significantly. Albemarle County graduates have one of the highest percentages of advanced studies diplomas (considered by the Virginia Board of Education as the “college ready” diploma) awarded in Virginia. Students in all four high schools attend the best, most highly competitive colleges in the country. Pamela Moran has served Albemarle County Public Schools as superintendent for six years, beginning in January 2005. During her educational career, she worked as a secondary science teacher, middle school associate principal, science grant director, staff development and gifted education coordinator, elementary principal, director of curriculum, assistant superintendent for instruction, and superintendent. She also has taught educational leadership and curriculum courses as an adjunct instructor for the University of Virginia’s Curry School and the School of Continuing Education. In 2010, Moran was appointed to the Governor’s Commission on Higher Education, and she currently serves as president-elect of the Virginia Association of School Superintendents. She has a B.S. from Furman University and an M.Ed and Ed.D from the University of Virginia.

Skyward

Greetings,I am an Assistant Principal in a district that will use Skyward for the first time this year for scheduling to grading. I would like to hear from others that are using Skyward for scheduling. How has using it reduced the difficulty in building a master schedule and creating student schedules? I currently work at a high school grades 9-12 with 1600 students. The scheduling task shifted to me due to a resignation and I would like insight since only the departing administrator attended…See More
