CONGRATULATIONS to Dr. Joyce Stewart, Everett Public Schools Deputy Superintendent,
who was honored with the Robert J. Handy Most Effective Administrator Award, last night in Spokane.
Robert J. Handy Most Effective Administrator Award
The Robert J. Handy Most Effective Administrator Awards, sponsored by PEMCO Insurance and WASA, seek to recognize outstanding public-school administrators in Washington state. One highly effective superintendent, central office administrator, or building administrator is selected from a small school district (up to 500 students), medium-size school district (501–2,000 students), and large school district (over 2,000 students).
A $10,000 award is equally divided among the three winners. A peer committee selects the recipients from nominations that describe how each nominee is taking part in realizing the nine characteristics of high performing schools/districts as defined by research from the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction.
Dr. Joyce is donating her award to the Everett Music 4 Life Booster Club, whose mission is to provide musical instruments to students who may not be able to afford one.
