I noticed a welcome change to the SPS website today. You can now find any Seattle Public Schools staff person by name, along with the associated contact information. As many of you know, it has been extremely frustrating to try to find contact information for district staffers when the only contact information listed was for departments.
Also, when looking by department, you can now look for a school name (at least for high schools and middle schools), and get the associated name and contact information for the Middle or High School Director responsible for that school.
New and revised contact pages include:
Contact us by person
It also looks like some org charts have been updated.
Learning & Teaching
I think we have the new Communicators Director, Bridget Chandler, to thank for this change. The topic came up at one of the Community Conversations in February and she said she would work to make it happen.
Perhaps this is a sign of organizational culture change. Can we expect a more responsive and more accessible SPS district staff in the future?
