The Vermont Curriculum Leaders Association (VTCLA) steering committee has announced Linda Keating as the nonprofit’s first-ever executive director. Keating, current director of curriculum for Franklin West Supervisory Union (FWSU), will officially begin on July 1.

“Linda Keating is exactly what VTCLA was looking for in an executive director. She has vast educational leadership experience and expertise, serving as an exemplary curriculum leader to colleagues across the state. She provides visionary global thinking and leadership, and applies this to the current education policy arena in Vermont,” the organization stated in the announcement Monday.

The organization aims to improve PreK-12 student learning and outcomes, collaborate effectively with other organizations that are within and beyond Vermont, maximize support and sustainability of membership by providing opportunities for professional growth and networking, expand the network of Vermont curriculum leaders and increase advocacy of curriculum efforts in Vermont, according to the organization.

“In this time when curriculum leadership is critical to improvement efforts around the state, having a key leadership position will strengthen collaborative efforts and guide the work ahead,” the organization states.
