Carla Buboltz, District Administrator for the Wrightstown School District, was visited on June 29, 2010.
On June 29, 2010, we traveled up to Wrightstown to talk with Carla Buboltz, District Administrator for the Wrightstown School District. Located in southern Brown County, with portions of the district in nine area municipalities, the district serves nearly 1,300 students.
During our time together, Carla talked about the need for districts to train principals and other site administrators to be instructional leaders. We suggested a potential way to do that may be to model an action/research classroom-based program in collaboration with several districts and the college. The program would not be driven by traditional courses, but rather by interactive, reflective collaboration around instruction-driven research in the classroom. We agreed to talk to other districts this summer to determine if there may be interest in such a program.
We also talked with Carla about:
The choices students have to make for post-high school education and career paths.
ESL, math and special education licenses, which can be obtained through the EXCEL Center’s Add-on Licensure program.
The Math Placement Review and the possibility of the Carla joining the COEHS/K-12 Advisory Council.
How cooperating teachers working with the college’s student teachers must complete a course in supervision. COEHS offers a supervision course in online, hybrid and face-to-face format options.
Teachers who may be interested in the college’s preparatory course for the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards.
