In this Voices podcast, we are joined by Dr. Jacqueline Coe, Superintendent of Schools for SAU24, serving the towns of Weare, Henniker, John Stark, and Stoddard.
Jackie discusses how in her first year in the role of superintendent of schools, for which she literally took over in January, she has leaned on her relationships to help support and lead her community through this difficult time.
Jackie shares the “marathon sprint” they feel like they are currently in, and how they have focused on the social/emotional health of their community as foundational to support.
Jackie discusses how she has spearheaded a task force to consider “back to school” possibilities and develop a plan, identifying the need to start now, not wait for the summer, to plan appropriately for what the fall might bring.
Jackie shares their collective focus on the need to meet each learner where they are, and the challenges during this pandemic, but the question of how we take care of one another drives the work and planning.
