The Region 16 Comprehensive Center Community of Stewards kicked off its third year by welcoming new stewards representing the Washington and Alaska educational service district (ESD) networks.
Each member of the Community of Stewards leads work in their contexts and communities to improve the quality and equity of the learning experience for each student. Collectively, they steward a vision for transforming educational outcomes for all students regionwide. This October, we welcomed:
- Josh Coughran, superintendent, Skagway School District
- Flip Herndon, superintendent, Capital Region ESD 113
“The Community of Stewards is a great opportunity and example of how we can work collaboratively across states and regions within each of our states,” Flip Herndon said. “I look forward to the work we can do together to keep this going and support one another.”
The 22-member Community of Stewards convenes throughout the year to enhance the value of our consortium model. Stewards strengthen inter-ESD partnerships across our three-state region through their participation.
Stewards will gather again later this fall in state-level roundtables to identify practices that can be elevated and amplified as part of our collective efforts.
Shared stewardship is a pillar of the 2023–24 Regional Service Plan. Learn more about our vision for shared stewardship at r16cc.org/projects.
