SCHOLARSHIP INFORMATION AND LINKS:
SPRINGFIELD —Jodi L. Scott, Regional Superintendent of Schools for Henderson, Knox, Mercer and Warren County Regional Office of Education 33, has been named the 2018 Superintendent of Distinction by her colleagues in the Western Region of the Illinois Association of School Administrators.
Scott was honored at an awards luncheon Monday in Springfield. State Superintendent Dr. Tony Smith was the featured speaker at the luncheon where 21 IASA regional Superintendent of Distinction recipients were honored.
“Being selected as a Superintendent of Distinction is very special to me as it is an award that comes from my peers. I have the utmost respect for the district superintendents in my region, as well as across the state,” said Scott, who has been an educator for 25 years and has maintained her role as the elected regional superintendent of schools for ROE 27 since 2007 and the consolidated region of ROE 33 since 2015. “It is because of their camaraderie and support that has allowed me to serve in the capacity that I do. I don’t do this work for public recognition; I do what I believe in and strive to be a servant leader for the communities I serve. I am very grateful and humble by the recognition I have received for this award.”
Those nominating Scott noted a number of successes in the ROE 33 district during her tenure. Accomplishments include:
• In her role in the consolidated region of ROE 33, she covers more than 2,000 square miles and serves 94,000 community members, 13,000 students and 2,000 educators.
• Seeks program opportunities that benefit all children in her region.
• Oversees 11 programs under her leadership, which include 21st century community learning centers, prenatal to three parent educators, preschool for all classrooms, adult education and literacy, and regional alternative education services.
• Serves on state level councils, including the Early Learning Council, The Performance Evaluation Advisory Council, and was appointed by the governor to the School Funding Commission. “These unique individuals in the field of Illinois public education are providing exceptional leadership and are industrious in developing creative contributions that elevate the success of students in their districts and support solutions to growing demands. These Superintendents of Distinction were selected by their peers in their regions because of the dedication, commitment and leadership they have demonstrated,” said IASA Executive Director Dr. Brent Clark.
Scott obtained her bachelor’s degree in elementary education and master’s degree in early childhood education and administration from Western Illinois University. She also earned the superintendent’s endorsement from Western Illinois University. She is also an active member of the Rotary Club, Kiwanis Club and is a Paul Harris Fellow.
