QACPS Hires New Supervisor of Accountability, Assessment, and Data Management

 

CENTREVILLE, MD – Queen Anne’s County Public Schools (QACPS) superintendent Dr. Andrea Kane announced today the hiring of Mrs. Julie Forbes to serve as the school system’s new Supervisor of Accountability, Assessment, and Data Management.

 

“I am pleased to welcome Mrs. Forbes to the QACPS team. Her experience, background, and skills make Mrs. Forbes an excellent organizational fit,” Dr. Kane said. “She will lead our use of data to make instructional decisions that continue driving progress in student achievement.”

 

Mrs. Forbes was Director of Assessment and Accountability for the last four years in Fremont Unified School District, which serves more than 35,000 students in northern California. She provided direct support to school leaders and staff in data analysis, state accountability systems, administration of interim and summative assessments, and standards-based teaching and reporting.

 

She served in various school leadership roles including principal and assistant principal at the elementary, middle, and high school levels. As a principal, she effectively introduced blended learning programs to target gaps in students’ skills and her school was recognized as a California Distinguished School.

 

She began her career as a special education teacher in the Teach for America program. She holds a Master of Science degree in educational leadership from the California State University at East Bay, special education teaching credentials from Sonoma State University, and a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. 

 

Mrs. Forbes will replace the current Supervisor of Accountability, Mr. David Brown, who will retire in June after nearly 40 years of service to the school system. Mrs. Forbes will begin on July 1, 2019.
