A Message from Newly Appointed Education Commissioner, Dr. Ken Wagner

Posted by: Kamlyn Keith on 7/15/2015
Dear Rhode Island Students, Parents, and Educators:

On July 13th, the Board of Education approved my appointment as the Commissioner of Elementary and Secondary Education. 
I am honored by this appointment, and I am excited about the opportunity to serve you and all of the people of Rhode Island.

I’ve been in the education field since the age of 18, when I was elected to the school board of my hometown in New York. I have served in numerous different roles at the school, district and state levels – from school psychologist to principal to my current role as the senior deputy commissioner in New York.

As a school psychologist, I am trained to listen and I look forward to putting that training to work on behalf of the people of Rhode Island by meeting and listening to teachers, families, principals, students and other key stakeholders.

I am especially encouraged to join this new team in Rhode Island.  Governor Raimondo and her administration understand that education is an investment in the future and is deeply committed to building the needed partnerships to be successful.  

I’m deeply optimistic that our collective efforts will pay off for the children and families of Rhode Island and I look forward to the opportunity to serve.
