Tyrone Brookins Hired as New Assistant Superintendent for Academic Excellence and Accountability
Posted on 07/06/2020
Tyrone BrookinsI am thrilled to share that we have selected a new assistant superintendent for the position left vacant following Mike Johnson’s appointment as superintendent for Eau Claire Area Schools. Please join me in welcoming Tyrone Brookins as Assistant Superintendent for Academic Excellence and Accountability.

Dr. Brookins brings a wealth of experience in helping students and staff succeed. His leadership in the improvement of racial equity for students compliments the work through our strategic plan. As a regional and national speaker and trainer for Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID), Dr. Brookins brings a great deal of knowledge and strategies for incorporating the success of AVID into a school system.

Our school district has a responsibility to be inclusive of all voices and to empower students at school and encourage their families to become part of their child’s education, which Dr. Brookins is uniquely qualified to support. He is adept at guiding teachers and staff to identify absent narratives in curriculum so all students can see themselves in what they’re learning. His skills will be a great fit to help us improve as a district and leadership team.

Dr. Brookins also has excellent academic qualifications with a Bachelor of Science degree in secondary education from Wiley College, a Master of Education degree in teacher leadership and a Doctor of Education degree in educational policy and administration, both from the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities.

Assistant Superintendents Kristine Shaefer and Julie Nielsen will work closely with Dr. Brookins to make his transition to our district as smooth as possible for the new school year. The schools and departments that he will oversee will be announced at a later date. Please give him a warm welcome on his first day of Tuesday, July 7.

Thank you for supporting South Washington County Schools.

Sincerely,

Keiths Signature



Keith Jacobus,
Superintendent
