Summit School District communications coordinator moving on

Julie McCluskie, climate and communications coordinator for the Summit School District, has accepted a position in the Lieutenant Governor’s office as the director of communications. Her last day with the district will be March 23.

“My experience these past six years as a part of Summit School District has been one of the most rewarding of my professional career,” McCluskie said. “I have had the opportunity to help our schools become caring communities through our bullying prevention, character education and cultural proficiency programs. Additionally, I have had a chance to create connections with and for our students, parents and community members in my role with district communications.”

McCluskie said she has truly valued working with the district’s staff and students. She said she was not looking to leave her current post, but couldn’t pass up this “tremendous opportunity.”

“Julie has been a true leader in Summit School District and our work in cultural proficiency and bullying prevention,” said Karen Strakbein, interim superintendent. “She has significantly improved our communications with parents and our community as well as our response to emergencies. She has made a lasting impact on the students and staff. This new position for Julie is a once in a lifetime opportunity and we will miss her skill, energy and enthusiasm. We wish her the best on this new chapter in her life.”
