krista-parentOregon’s 2007 Superintendent of the Year has been selected as one of four finalists for the National Superintendent of the Year award.

South Lane School District Superintendent Dr. Krista Parent and the other finalists will be interviewed by a “blue ribbon” panel of experts in Washington, D.C., January 8-10.  The other three finalists are: Dr. Brenda Dietrich from Topeka, Kansas; Dr. Larry Nyland from Marysville, Washington; and Susan Andrews from Hamilton, Georgia.

The National Superintendent of the Year, the finalists and all state winners will be recognized at the American Association of School Administrator’s Annual Conference in New Orleans March 1-4, 2007.

An educator for 22 years, Parent has served as a teacher, coach, athletic director, high school administrator, Director of Curriculum and Instruction, Assistant Superintendent, and Superintendent.  Superintendent in South Lane for six years, Parent serves 2,900 students in a district that has been a state leader in literacy, mathematics, and technology, despite the fact that approximately 55 percent of its students are economically disadvantaged, 17 percent qualify for special education services, and more than 200 students receive support as homeless students.
