VPS Superintendent Steve Webb has been selected to receive the Community Schools Superintendent Leadership Award.
The award is given to superintendents who have championed the community school strategy and led their districts in the alignment and support of community schools. Webb was chosen for his work expanding Family-Community Resource Centers to 16 Vancouver schools and one mobile FCRC.
He also has brought the community schools strategy to other communities in the region, advocated for community schools nationally and provided leadership through the Superintendents’ Council for Community Schools.
The award is presented by the Coalition for Community Schools; Institute for Educational Leadership; and AASA, The School Superintendents Association.
Webb, the 2016 Washington state Superintendent of the Year, a finalist for National Superintendent of the Year and Education Week Leader to Learn From, will receive the award at the Community Schools National Forum in April.
