The Butler Area School District Board of School Directors voted to hire Ms. Vanessa Boyd as the new Broad Street Elementary School Principal.
With more than 20 years of experience in education, Ms. Boyd has dedicated her career to bringing academic communities to life as she serves students and works to eliminate gaps in education for all learners.
“I am very excited for the opportunity to be a part of a community where we can work together to build something special to serve students,” said Ms. Boyd. “I love the community vibe in Butler. I’m looking forward to learning how I can best serve individuals in the community.”
Prior to coming to Butler, Ms. Boyd was the Community Schools Site Manager at Community Schools Pittsburgh Milliones University Prep 6-12 where she provided vision and leadership in planning and implementing the Community School’s principles and practices to ensure they were aligned to the needs of the school community.
She also previously served as an Enrollment Director at the K12 Educational Company, a Blended Mathematics Teacher at Hill House Passport Academy Charter School, a Student Affairs Liaison and Mathematics Teacher at Career Connections Charter High School and an Instructional Facilitator for the Beaver Area Academic Charter School Cyber Program.
Ms. Boyd enjoys taking a collaborative approach to education. In each of her roles, Ms. Boyd remained committed to connecting with parents and the community for the ultimate success of the students. She also enjoys working with her colleagues to cultivate an eager work environment and foster strong relationships both in and outside of the school community.
Ms. Boyd earned her Bachelor of Science in biology at Megar Evers College and her Master of Arts in education from University of Phoenix and her PA School Principal Certification K-12 from Point Park University.
“There’s good work to be done at Butler,” said Ms. Boyd. “I can’t wait to get started.”
The district intends to reopen Broad Street Elementary School for the 2021-2022 school year. As the details come together, more information will be shared with our community this month.
Welcome to Butler, Ms. Boyd!
