In Alaska, NWCC works with the Alaska Department of Education & Early Development (EED) on these priorities:
Leading this work is the Alaska State Coordinator Deborah Davis, who serves as a liaison to both the NWCC and REL Northwest. In her NWCC role, Davis provides technical assistance to EED, building the state’s capacity to support districts and schools to improve instruction, close achievement gaps, and improve educational outcomes for all students.
In her REL Northwest role, Davis works with EED and other education stakeholders to identify high-priority needs and provide resources to meet those needs. As a team member of the Alaska State Policy Research Alliance, she is helping members focus on research and policy around preparing students for postsecondary success.
Davis is a project manager at Education Northwest, the parent organization of REL Northwest and NWCC, where she specializes in school improvement issues. Her most recent responsibility prior to becoming the Alaska State Coordinator was project director for Oregon’s Continuous Improvement Network, which recruits, trains, and places coaches in low-performing, high-poverty schools. She has worked extensively in Alaska on projects such as the statewide literacy blueprint and implementing Alaska cultural standards.
