Dr. Stan DeJarnett Named CAO
Curriculum Advantage Welcomes New Chief Academic Officer
LAWRENCEVILLE, GA - Aug 03, 2011 - Curriculum Advantage Inc., developer of the award-winning Classworks® comprehensive instructional improvement system for kindergarten through high school, has named Stanley W. DeJarnett, Ed.D., to the newly created position of chief academic officer. Dr. DeJarnett brings to Curriculum Advantage more than 35 years of experience in the education field, including numerous leadership positions with national and state level associations involved in driving policy and planning of public education programs.
Most recently, DeJarnett was superintendent of Morgan County Schools, a K-12 school district based in Madison, Ga. As Curriculum Advantage’s chief academic officer, DeJarnett will bring his considerable experience to bear in developing partnerships, and setting product and implementation strategy to better help K-12 educators meet the myriad challenges they face, including implementation of the new Common Core State Standards.
A former member of the American Association of School Administrators (AASA), DeJarnett just completed a two-year term on AASA’s National Governing Board. He’s also a member of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools’ Council on Accreditation and School Improvement, where he just completed a term as chairman of the Georgia Council. Other positions of distinction include a board position with the Georgia School Superintendents Association and the Georgia Association of Educational Leaders, an organization that honored him with the Outstanding Educator of the Year award in 2006. DeJarnett is likewise a past president of the Georgia Association for Curriculum and Instructional Supervision, and he serves on the Georgia Technical Advisory Committee for the National Student Clearinghouse Project, a project funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to follow high school graduates’ performance in college.
“With all the pressures and demands schools encounter every day, they need to know that the instructional solution they select is backed by an organization that truly understands their needs. Stan’s accomplishments as a K-12 administrator demonstrate that he not only understands the challenges, but knows how to overcome them,” said Lindsey Cook, CEO of Curriculum Advantage. “Creating this position, and hiring someone of Stan’s caliber, will no doubt advance our position as a leader in helping schools provide targeted, individualized instruction to help every student achieve success.”
DeJarnett’s education experience includes several classroom and building leadership positions in Illinois and Georgia, as well as a curriculum consulting position with the Georgia Department of Education. He joined Morgan County Schools in 1996 and was promoted to superintendent in 2006. He earned his Ed.D. in educational leadership from the University of Georgia.
