From the story:
“I will not let this community down,” said Enfield, the interim chief of Seattle schools. “I will work tirelessly on behalf of the students and staff here.”
The job at the 18,000-student district would start July 1, the day after Enfield’s position in Seattle ends – a commitment she plans to keep, Enfield said. The contract would be for three years; salary terms have not yet been finalized.
In choosing Highline, Enfield spurned advances from Bellevue School District officials, who were exploring an accelerated interview process with her for their superintendent vacancy.
Enfield said she was impressed by Highline’s staff and school board. She made the decision after spending Friday interviewing at the district, she said.
“I don’t think it’s so much what Highline has that Bellevue doesn’t,” she said. “I just thought the fit (was better).”
Enfield said she plans to relocate her family to Highline. Her husband currently lives in Portland. “We can’t wait,” she said.A couple of comments.
This seems like an interesting choice for Dr. Enfield; I wish her wish.
I would also tell Highline to get ready for the full-court press for TFA because it is coming.
Also, I have no idea why Dr. Enfield was in SPS so long and yet her husband never moved here. Odd, given that now she has another job in the same area and now he's moving.
