    VASD Organizational Structure

    Last year, our administrative and human resources teams collaborated with our Student Advisory Group, Staff Advisory Group, and Parent Advisory Group, held listening sessions, completed building walkthroughs, and collected survey results from students, families, and staff. We used this data to consider how to best organize staff to serve all students, decrease educator workload, and function coherently.
