CIS Friends and Family,

As we transition from one school year to another, we want to let you know that Erin McCallum has departed from the State Director role at Communities In Schools of Washington. We thank Erin for her service and dedication to Washington students. We are pleased to share that to navigate the transition in leadership, Jeannie Nist (Associate Director) will serve as Interim Executive Director through December 1, 2022.

Our CISWA Board of Directors will support Jeannie to ensure a smooth transition while we plan next steps including future leadership. As a board of 19 members, we are each investing time, devotion, and expertise into navigating this period of change without hesitation. At the state office, we are also surrounded by supportive, thoughtful, and committed peers in our affiliate network, and we are grateful for our CIS community.

Our mission, commitment and service delivery model remain the same. We are 100% committed to the success of ALL students and families in Washington, and we know you feel the same way. We’re proud and grateful to partner with you, and we look forward to what we can accomplish together this year.

All in for kids,

Julie Kerby, Board Chair
Communities In Schools of Washington
