Superintendent Dr. Sue Rieke-Smith announced today that the Tigard-Tualatin School District (TTSD) will be closed on Wednesday, May 8th as teachers will be participating in the statewide “Day of Action” in support of education funding. 

"I want to thank all our families for their patience while district administrators and I considered our options of how we honor our teachers’ plans for advocacy on May 8th while avoiding the disruption in losing a day of instruction for our students," said Dr. Rieke-Smith. "The decision making process has been informed by our school board’s vision of “children first” and guided by our community that has generously supported our district."

TTSD will follow the board approved 2018-2019 School Calendar plan relative to closure/make-up days and May 8th will be the district's third closure day. Therefore all schools will have a full instructional day with students on Friday, June 14th.

Tigard-Tualatin School District names Lisa McCall new assistant superintendent (Photo) - 05/02/19

TIGARD, OR. – After conducting a national search, the Tigard-Tualatin School District (TTSD) announced today that Lisa McCall will assume the role of assistant superintendent beginning July 1, 2019. McCall comes to TTSD after nearly 11 years with Portland Public Schools and will fill the position held by Karen Twain who will retire in June after 30 years with the district.

With 22 years in education, McCall has served as a preschool and elementary teacher, an assistant principal, principal, and adjunct professor. She is currently a senior director with Portland Public Schools where she supervises a cohort of K-8 principals and supports school leaders in addressing inequities in their setting. Lisa is also a doctoral student at Lewis and Clark where her research is focused on the persistent problem of disproportionate discipline and is committed to finding new ways to improve the quality of public education at the district and local levels.

“Lisa will be an excellent addition to our leadership team,” said Superintendent Sue Rieke-Smith. “Her breadth of experience in the classroom and as an administrator, complimented with her dedication to students first, quality instruction and equity in outcomes immediately made her the frontrunner in our search. I have no doubt she will be transformative for TTSD.”

McCall will oversee early learning and K-12 instruction, elementary administrators and the district’s Aspiring Leadership Program. She will contribute to the successful achievement of the goals established in TTSD’s Strategic Plan to include leading the plans’ commitment to equity.

TTSD is the ninth largest district in Oregon, serving approximately 12,500 students. The district has two high schools, three middle schools, 10 elementary schools and hosts the Durham Education Center and MITCH Charter School.
