Special Education Oversight
Associate Chief: Jennifer Vantress
Assistant: Sandra Askew
I have had the privilege of being an educator in Washoe County School District for over 25 years. I began my career as a Speech-Language Pathologist. I also served in the WCSD Special Education Department as a Program Consultant and Special Education Area Administrator, providing supports to general and special education teachers and administrators in elementary through high schools. In 2006, I became an assistant principal for Caughlin Ranch and Marvin Moss Elementary Schools. The following year, I was the assistant principal at Van Gorder ES. This led to being selected as the principal at Van Gorder in 2011.
As an Associate Chief, I am committed to collaborate with our school communities and families to help all students attain their full potential.
