The Lawrence school district has announced that Amanda Green, a curriculum and instructional learning coach at Broken Arrow Elementary School, will fill the position of interim principal, effective July 1.
Green “has served as a coach for the district’s student centered support system or Comprehensive, Integrated, Three-Tiered Model of Prevention (Ci3T),” according to the district’s news release Wednesday. “This summer, she will act as a lead teacher for the district’s summer learning program after serving last year as a summer learning site administrator.”
At Broken Arrow, Green has been a member of the building leadership, Ci3T leadership, and school redesign teams, according to the release.
“I am beyond excited to be starting my journey as a principal at Broken Arrow Elementary,” Green said in the release. “Through my work as a curriculum and instruction learning coach at Broken Arrow for the past four years, I know firsthand that our scholars, families, and teachers are incredibly special. I consider myself so fortunate to continue to be a part of this amazing school community.”
Green replaces Heather Renk, who is leaving to take a high school principal position in St. Joseph, Missouri.
“As we move into the next school year, I am dedicated to our Broken Arrow vision of making certain ALL students are embraced, challenged, and celebrated,” Green continued, according to the release. “I am most excited about the opportunities we have moving forward. Whether it be multigrade classrooms or identifying innovative ways to support the needs of every student, I can’t wait to continue the tradition of student success at Broken Arrow.”
Green’s new position is still pending school board approval.
