​​​Here at NWSISD our mission is to create and foster “A Global Community Learning and Growing Together”. I’ve worked with NWSISD as a partner since 2003 within the Elk River Area School District and in January of 2015 was honored to be selected as the Executive Director. We accomplish our mission by providing opportunities for professional learning, Magnet Schools of Choice as well as college and career readiness programs for students in pursuit of closing achievement and opportunity gaps. If you are an employee of our seven member districts please take advantage of our many programs we have to offer. Please feel free to stop by and check out our Multicultural Resource Center. Check our website often for highlights from our districts and NWSISD programs.
