Cleveland Reappointed to Council by Governor
Dr. Roger Cleveland, associate professor of educational leadership and policy studies at Eastern Kentucky University, has been reappointed to the School Curriculum, Assessment and Accountability Council by Gov. Steve Beshear.
SCAAC, composed of two parents, two teachers, two superintendents, two principals, two local school board members, two school district assessment coordinators, two employers in the state, two university professors and one at-large member, advises the Kentucky Board of Education on the design of the testing and accountability system and the highly skilled educator program.
The council is tasked with making recommendations concerning Kentucky’s system of setting academic standards, accessing learning, holding schools accountable for learning, and assisting schools to improve their performance. It advises the KBE and the Legislative Research Commission on issues related to the development and communication of the academic expectations and core content for assessment, the development and implementation of the statewide assessment and accountability program, the distribution of rewards and imposition of sanctions, and assistance for schools to improve their performance.
Cleveland, who joined the EKU faculty in 2008, holds a bachelor’s degree in communications from Morehead State University, a master’s degree in sociology of education from Union College, and a doctoral degree in educational foundations (with a concentration on social and cultural foundations of education) from the University of Cincinnati.
He was appointed to his first two-year term on the SCAAC in 2012, and will now serve through April 30, 2016.
