July 20, 2012 McPherson & Jacobson, LLC DCPSSuperintendent Dear Board Members: Large urban school systems in America offer

an extraordinary range of programs, courses, and experiences for students. DCPS has more than its share of award-winning schools, programs, teachers, and students. But urban school systems also exhibit high dropout rates, chronic absenteeism of students (and staff), challenging school climate issues, and low performing students and schools. Americans have settled on the argument that poverty, native language, parental education levels, and other factors are responsible for these differentiated, largely statistically predictable, results. Living and working full-time as a Visiting Professor at the National University of Singapore for the past year has poignantly reminded me that our national narrative for urban schools is self-fulfilling prophecy. Singapore is one of several Asian nations (e.g., South Korea, Taiwan) that went from third world to first world status in underSO years. In Singapore's first elementary exit exam in 1960, only 45% passed and entered secondary schools. Even in the late 1970s, 30% of elementary students did not enter secondary schools. Today, almost 100% of Singaporean students receive 10 years of formal education and 93% of high school graduates pursue some form of post-secondary education'. It is not accidental that Singapore is consistently ranked on competitiveness #1 in the world. Education ~a family's top priority, whatever their ethnic and linguistic background, and considerable sacrifices are made to obtain marks sufficient to advance within Singapore's highly competitive, test-oriented, system of formal education. I am not suggesting that DCPS become like Singapore -this is neither possible nor desirable. The key lesson is that determined efforts by adults working together for the individual and collective future of children and youth can, and do, make a profound difference on the educational and socioeconomic destinies of those who will, in Paul Goodman's memorable phrase, "go to a future we do not see." I want to apply my considerable experience, expertise, passion, vision, and energy to work collaboratively with the adults of Jacksonville (parents, teachers, staff, Board, community leaders, academics) so that children and youth can flourish intellectually, socially, emotionally, and spiritually (however it is conceived). The work I did as a Director at the RI Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (RIDE) equips me fully for Superintendent of DCPS. RI as a state had at the time, very roughly speaking, the same number of schools, teachers, and square miles as DCPS.The 37 districts in this city-state were likely as diverse as the several hundred somewhat distinct neighborhoods of JAX. Over 60 native languages were formally recognized in the urban core. I worked statewide for nine years on major improvement efforts in education - especially concentrating on the five cities of RI where the bulk Of students resided and where poverty was widespread (Providence, East Providence, Central Falls, Woonsocket, and Pawtucket). a Search

I am a nationally acknowledged expert on educational accountability, designing and implementing statewide system in RI that won national awards and considerable attention for its sophisticated approach to providing rich information to inform decision making. long-lasting collaboration with the University of RI (URI), included: predict scores based on various demographic characteristics along standards and details of the performance of subpopulations within

Our system, created in a unique and 1) hierarchical linear modeling to with absolute scores against each school, 2) accounting for ALL

students ina school (long before this became a NCLB requirement), 3) detailed reports on school discipline matters, 4) standard charters of accounts to enable district by district and school by school financial comparisons, 5) data derived from biannual surveys of teachers, students, parents, and administrators, 6) trend lines for achievement using three-year rolling averages rather than reporting inherently unstable year-to-year changes, and 7) calculating an annual prospective dropout rate for the state as a whole and each of its high schools (l.e., the percentage of today's graders who will graduate if current trends continue - with time to still powerfully intervene). Transitioning to FCAT, FL Department of Education procedures, and providing an informed district perspective to the state will be second nature to me.

s"

I led major efforts to create for the first time in the state, curriculum frameworks in a number of areas and worked in close collaboration with colleagues in assessment to create, implement, and utilize the results of the New Standards Reference Examinations and performance-based writing assessments. We formed a pioneering assessment consortium with several other New England states that remains active to this day. I transformed the Department's IT systems at the request of the Commissioner, transitioning us into Oracle (relational database), creating online reporting forms for schools and districts, and working with university partners at URI and Brown University to form a statewide Internet2 consortium which provided state of the art video conferencing for all of the state's public and private schools, universities, and state agencies. I represented the Commissioner in many meetings of various bodies within the state and nationally as well as representing my own areas of responsibility in other forums.

As a nationally known figure in STEM education, I have led efforts to create new curricula, national programs, and transformational learning experiences in both formal and informal settings for children, youth, and the general public. My "distinguished contributions" to state and national STEM educationwere recognized by my election in 2009 as a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science - the largest scientific association in the world. Building on this strong base of experience, I would lead DCPSto new heights of excellence and programming in STEM teaching and learning. I have ample additional experiences relevant to the DCPSsuperintendency from my work at the NY State Education Department, serving as a Vice President of Education at the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, and work in academia - as attested by the lengthy CV accompanying this letter. I endorse the basic outlines for DCPSadvanced by the JAX PEF (I worked with their sibling organizations in several communities) and the Community Foundation of JAX (I worked extensively with the RI Foundation and the Greater Kansas City Community Foundation) and look forward to a long, productive relationship with these and other local organizations. It is time to rebuild morale, recenter goals, create broad-based community engagement, and position DCPSas a national beacon for imagination, creativity, innovation, and entrepreneurship in teaching and learning. My extensive and relevant state, national, and international connections can be usefully leveraged on behalf of DCPS. If the Board and community are open to advanced innovation, many of my colleagues and friends from around the nation would rally to our side and strongly consider DCPS as an innovation site for various worthwhile initiatives .

The School Board has identified the following qualities for the superintendent of schools. Please respond to each of the qualities stressing your experience, strengths, and abilities in each area,limiting your responses to between 200 and 300 words for each item. 1. A leader who solicits, respects and values the input of stakeholders at all levels of the organization and who has demonstrated leadership in utilizing that input to create and sustain a culture of shared decision-making. I have a long track record of soliciting views of various stakeholders via informal dialogue, formal focus groups, surveys, and issuing of white papers that invited written responses. In constructing for the first time a comprehensive public accountability reporting system for the state of RI, I utilized focus groups of parents, students, administrators, teachers, and community organizations to determine what would be assessed, how it would be measured, and how it would be reported. Each year an extensive verification process was used to ensure that schools and districts had opportunity to correct errors of fact so that we had a high quality product. Extensive survey data from parents, students, teachers, and administrators provided qualitative data about school climate issues on a biannual basis. Privacy and anonymity were appropriately maintained. Collaborative, informal negotiation was also used to create a new Department of Education intemal performance appraisal system using staff, union reps, and supervisors. I was a key member of the team that created this system and piloted it within my own unit. As a statewide Project Coordinator at the NY State Education Department, I extensively employed focus groups, surveys, and accepted written comments to improve curriculum materials to be used in middle school classrooms statewide. A similar approach was used when I coordinated a project to create performance-based science assessment items for future Regents' Examinations in grades 4 &8, Regents Biology, and Regents Earth Science. . When a VP at the Kauffman Foundation, we funded a large-scale effort to collect survey data and focus group data from parents and community leaders about science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education. It replicated a national study to see how metropolitan Kansas City area was alike or different from national norms. It provided factual information for local conversations inside and outside of schools about improving STEM teaching, learning, and career applications of knowledge and skills. 2. A leader who supports and empowers principals, teachers and staff to improve organizational and student performance outcomes. Working in close collaboration with the Commissioner and Department staff, I co-led efforts to stimulate data-informed conversations about schools' and school districts' performance across the state of RI. This included extensive embargoed press briefings

before the annual release of InformationWorks! with print, radio, and TV media reporters and meetings with superintendents, principals, school boards, and local constituencies. A formal set of tools and methods were collaboratively developed by Department staff and school personnel to advance comprehensive, in-depth discussion about how to improve local schools and school districts (collectively known as SALT). Since I was directly responsible for RI's nine area Career and Technical Centers as well as high school reform, I personally led work with these institutions regarding SALT. I collaborated with the University of RI to evaluate the CTCs along with career and technical programs in comprehensive high schools as part of a required annual evaluation of Perkins-funded programs. I also oversaw grievance procedures. As a senior leader in foundation, university, nonprofit, and corporate sectors, I have worked with staff/to develop better insights into our successes and failures. We identified useful approaches to improve performance, formulated outcomes in a manner that enabled us to know when we were meeting them, and created formal and informal processes to regularly monitor progress. I have consistently advanced individual and organizational learning through the effective use of performance-based appraisal systems and measurable outcomes - while recognizing that not everything that counts can be counted and not everything that can be counted counts (as sociologist William Bruce Cameron said). Schools will never test their way to excellence, they can only teach and learn their way there. Teachers are central to genuine school improvement and student learning.

3. A proactive visionary, able to consider, plan and implement systemic change that increase the district's ability to recognize and respond to current and future challenges as they arise. Virtually all who know me would describe me as a proactive visionary. I have consistently imagined how things could be different, articulated that belief to others in a way that raised aspirations, supported the realization of strategies and approaches that could potentially bring life to our ideas, and insisted on rigorous measurement at appropriate points to understand the impact of what we had created and its effects. I have been in the forefront of the development of new curriculum standards, new curriculum materials, pioneering new instructional approaches, developing sophisticated assessment systems, reengineering IT systems to be more functional, intuitive, and robust, and improving physical work environments. I successfully led efforts to raise competitive funds to support innovation, wrote about those innovations, and spoke about them in regional, national, and international forums. I have worked well and often with union leaders to advance educational reforms in a variety of locales. I have critiqued in the media and in person much of what we do in formal educational settings, especially when it does not serve the interests of students but merely represents the inclinations, interests, or prejudices of adults. I have built large-scale coalitions across education, business, science and engineering, government, university, and foundation sectors to better serve the needs of schools and school districts. We

either let the future happen or we take charge of our future and work hard and continuously to shape it in fruitful ways. 4. Someone with strong organizational and leadership skills, able to collaboratively align and focus internal and external stakeholders' efforts to accelerate progress on achieving the district's goals for student and organizational performance. Worthwhile school change requires appropriate goals, clear objectives, relevant measures that provide valid and reliable information, and sufficient buy-in so change can be widespread enough to matter. Unfortunately far too many efforts are plagued by inappropriate goals, unclear objectives, poorly designed or implemented measures, and information of extremely limited validity and/or reliability. These factors frequently lead to insufficient buy-in of veteran staff who have "seen it all before." I have devoted considerable time to acquiring deep expertise about these matters, conversing regularly with expert colleagues in these arenas, and reading widely in relevant research literature to maintain currency. I worked in concert with an international group of colleagues to establish the global Campbell Collaboration to improve the quality of synthesized information about the effects of interventions in education, crime and justice, and social welfare. Most interventions have no discernible effects, some have modest effects, a few have important effects, and some are actually harmful. Much time was spent in NY, RI, and the Kansas City metropolitan area working with school districts, schools, and community partners to find common ground, agree on principled actions, and hold ourselves accountable for reasonable but challenging outcomes. . Too much of contemporary formal education focuses on external goals that have limited meaning for practitioners in schools. I have consistently worked to move indicator systems closer to the classroom and embedding them in actual practice rather than external exercises that happen intermittently with little direct linkage to teaching and learning within the school curriculum. While in NY, I worked with IBM and District 2 in NYC to align their curriculum and build embedded assessment systems that linked directly to articulated, well-aligned student learning standards - hard work indeed! 5. A person of integrity who is trustworthy and whose relationships, with the board and acrossthe district, are predicated on honest and open communications. I am widely known as a "straight-shooter" who is principled in my dealings with others and forms bonds of trust with individuals who represent both themselves and others. This approach builds effective, long-term relationships and can help power the kinds of complex, sustained changes that are needed in preK-12 and higher education. I do not intentionally manipulate results but always work to ensure that we can obtain the best, most high quality information pertinent to the topic at hand. This may mean explaining to others why the existing data cannot be relied upon or characterizing quite specifically the limitations of the information. I hold confidences when needed but also highly value public processes where deliberations are open and readily available to people outside of the room where the meeting is held. I strongly dislike putting "spin" on bad news but instead attempt to use it as an opportunity to make a point, renew our commitment, revisit our assumptions, improve our methods, or reflect deeply on our profession.
Duval County Public Schools, Jacksonville, FL Closing date July 23, 2012

Over the years I have held "difficult" conversations with staff whose performance was sub-par, funders or leaders whose ideas were off-target, politicians who wanted me to favor their particular approach or candidate, and occasionally supervisors who wanted "good news" rather than the truth. I have the resolve and fortitude to handle these kinds of situations with humor, good will, an abiding interest in the individual, and a strong belief in the capacity of human beings to adapt and grow. I am passionate about the children and youth in our nation and their unbelievable potential. I challenge adults on a regular basis about what is best "for the kids." We can do better. We must do better. This is a moral, social, and economic imperative.

and fine-tune their approaches in light of ongoing data collection and analysis. I also organized a few funded proposals, including an influential study on scientists‘ views of religion conducted by Rice University which has been widely cited. My work at Templeton brought me into regular contact with Nobel Prize winners, members of national academies of science, engineering and medicine in many nations, and worldclass theologians and experts in religious studies across major world religions. I still occasionally review proposals for the foundation. Senior Manager, Education and Evaluation Services, Engineering and Infrastructure Group, Science Applications International Corporation (www.saic.com), 1995-2005 (full or part-time) Chief Responsibilities: Provided advice and helped obtain and execute contracts on education projects related to low level radioactive waste management, information technology in schools, intelligent transportation systems, digital libraries, environmental education, and physics and chemistry education. Many materials produced were made available nationally to schools; others were used in community forums at Superfund sites and similar situations at the interface of science, technology and society. SAIC during this period was an employee-owned Fortune 500 company with 45,000 employees in 150 offices worldwide and annual revenues of over $7 billion; it is now an $11 billion public corporation. Director, Rhode Island Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (RIDE), 1993-2002 and Adjunct Associate Professor of Education, University of Rhode Island, 1994-2002 Director, Office of Research, High School Reform & Adult Education, RIDE, 2000-2002; Director, Office of Information Services & Research, RIDE, 19971999; Coordinator of Mathematics, Science & Technology Education, RIDE, 1993-1996 Chief Responsibilities: State supervisor for nine Area Career and Technical Centers including administrators, programs, dispute resolution (between school districts and centers), and physical plant oversight.
