The position is designed to provide administrative support at the Elementary School in the areas of student discipline and curriculum development. This position will also support special education and early intervention services by serving as a CSE and CPSE Chairperson.
“We identified an area to strengthen in our elementary school and are very pleased to have support from the Board of Education in the creation of this new position,” said Director of Instructional Services Betsy Brown. “We are also fortunate that, among a strong candidate pool, we were able to identify an individual to bring experience and passion to the position.”
On June 15, the Board of Education approved the nomination of Kaitlin Kaercher to the position. Kaercher has worked at Byron-Bergen since 2016 as an elementary teacher for grades 1, 3, 4, 5, and 6.

I am excited to continue serving the students and families in our elementary school and working closely with our incredibly committed and talented faculty and staff.”
