Dr. Swanson is a strong proponent of leadership at all levels and believes input from all groups is important.
With that in mind, she has six Superintendent Cabinets she meets with on a regular basis.
Dr. Swanson regularly meets with elected student leaders from our high schools to gather student perspectives on the challenges and opportunities faced by students moving toward graduation and life beyond high school. The meetings are open ended allowing students to speak honestly about everything from school lunch menus to school culture and climate to scholarships and internships opportunities.
Superintendent Support Cabinet (SSC)
Dr. Swanson created the Superintendent Support Cabinet in the fall of 2014 to gather more input from Educational Support Professionals (ESP). The cabinet is advisory in nature and is designed to enhance “Big Picture” communication dealing with High Stakes and Systemic topics regarding Westminster Public Schools. The monthly meetings encourage a robust and honest discussion of the issues facing the District.
Administrative Cabinet (ADCAB)
The Administrative Cabinet is comprised of Directors and representative principals from across the District bringing varying leadership perspectives to the Superintendent’s office. The cabinet generally meets twice a month to address a wide range of topics including, but not limited to, academics, student safety, personnel, budget issues and other strategic goal areas.
Teacher Leadership Cabinet (TLC)
The Teacher Leadership Cabinet brings together teachers to discuss issues of mutual interest and concern.
In creating the TLC, Dr. Swanson sought the input of teachers with very diverse perspectives. With that in mind, the cabinet consists of teachers from a variety of content areas and with varying length of service in WPS. Every school has a representative on the cabinet.
