WPSD Hires Its New Chief Academic Officer

The following is a press release submitted by the Woodland Park School District.

Woodland Park School District (WPSD) announces the appointment of Ginger Slocum as its new Chief Academic Officer (CAO), effective April 8, 2024.

Slocum has been an integral part of the school district, serving as the Principal at Columbine Elementary for the past five years. She has demonstrated dedication, passion, and proven leadership at Columbine. Her wealth of experience and commitment to academic excellence make her the ideal candidate to guide the district’s academic endeavors.

Slocum holds a Master of Science in Education, with a focus on Curriculum & Instruction, and a Post-Master’s Degree in Administrative Educational Leadership. Her extensive experience in leading both secondary and elementary schools will contribute to the ongoing success of the district.

Slocum will work closely with Kim Moore, the district’s current CAO, during a transition period to ensure a seamless handover of responsibilities. This collaborative approach will allow for a smooth transition and continuity in our commitment to providing a high-quality education to all students.

During this transitional period, Ginger will allocate her time between the District office and her responsibilities as the Principal of Columbine Elementary. The district will post the Columbine Principal position to find a replacement for Slocum soon.
