Congratulations and Farewell to Mary Anderson
Please join us in congratulating Mary Anderson, the Director of Assessment, as she moves on to a new career opportunity. Mary will leave ODE June 23 and will join American Institutes for Research as a Senior Program Manager.
Although Mary joined the department just over one year ago, she will leave a lasting impression from her short time at ODE. She will dearly miss her ODE colleagues and looks forward to when professional paths may cross in the future since assessment is often a small professional world. Mary has demonstrated through action her commitment to an equitable education system that serves all Oregon students and will carry that commitment with her as she goes on to work with other state departments of education in her new role.
The Assessment and Accountability teams wish Mary all the best success in the future.
