Inslee names Scott McCallum superintendent of Washington State School for the Blind
OLYMPIA - Gov. Jay Inslee today named Scott McCallum superintendent of the Washington State School for the Blind in Vancouver.
McCallum has 17 years of experience working on behalf of students in Oregon who are blind/visually impaired (BVI). He most recently served for nearly six years as the Blind and Visually Impaired Student Fund administrator for the state of Oregon and coordinated specialized educational services for students who are BVI. McCallum also has experience in the classroom with BVI students as an itinerant teacher and orientation and mobility specialist in Eugene.
"Scott's experience has given him a unique understanding of the needs of students who are BVI," Inslee said. "His work to support implementation of the nation's first online adaptive state assessment accessible to students who read Braille and his contributions to the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium has given him a national reputation as a collaborative leader. I welcome him to Washington and look forward to working with him to benefit BVI students statewide."
McCallum has a Master of Science in orientation and mobility from Pennsylvania College of Optometry and a Bachelor of Science in elementary education from University of North Dakota.
McCallum begins his job June 1.
