Area Education Agency 267 (AEA 267) is pleased to announce that Julie Davies, currently the site superintendent for the AEA 267 Clear Lake office, has been selected as the agency’s new Educational Services Director. Davies will succeed Dr. Sara McInerny, who retired in December.
“I am pleased to have this opportunity to serve the schools in AEA 267 in this new capacity. I have a passion for the mission of Iowa’s AEAs and the many quality services it provides to children, families and educators,” said Davies. “I believe our role in education has never been more critically important.”
In her new position, Davies will oversee 43 staff members who provide school improvement consulting services to nearly 5,000 educators throughout 18 counties of north central and northeastern Iowa. Her position will be based out of the agency’s Cedar Falls office.
“Julie has an exceptional reputation in the state and is known for her leadership in curriculum and instruction,” said Dr. Roark Horn, AEA 267 chief administrator. “She has many established relationships and an incredible drive to make a difference for kids. Those we serve will greatly benefit from her leadership.”
Prior to being hired as the site superintendent for the agency in 2011, Davies held positions as the director for curriculum, instruction and assessment in the Western Dubuque Community School District; director of technology and curriculum at Okoboji Community School District; and served as a classroom teacher. She is in the process of completing her doctorate degree.
