The Washoe County School District (WCSD) is proud to welcome the Institute for Educational Leadership’s National Family and Community Engagement Conference to Reno this week.
July 1, 2019 -- Today the Board of Trustees of the Washoe County School District voted six to one to terminate Traci Davis’ contract as Superintendent of the District, effective immediately, with cause.
Good afternoon President Simon Holland members of the Board,
For the record, Kristen McNeill, Acting Superintendent/Deputy Superintendent, I appreciate the opportunity to speak to you all today in regards to my qualifications, character and ability to fulfill the role of Interim Superintendent for the Washoe County School District.
My track record in WCSD spans over two decades and is one of rising through the ranks based on my work ethic and abilities. I was a teacher at both Libby Booth ES and Smithridge ES. I have been a principal at Lois Allen and Marvin Moss elementary schools. I was director of State and Federal Programs overseeing the largest influx of federal grants in the history of the district. I was promoted to chief strategies officer and then became the district’s first chief of staff. I became Deputy Superintendent in 2015 and have served ethically and with integrity in that role for four years. As Deputy Superintendent, I oversee the day to day operations of the schools through the office of school leadership, the office of academics, the office of chief ombudsman, and special education compliance. Per the organizational structure of the district, I am the second in command of the district under the superintendent.
