Paula Radich Tapped for Salem-Keizer Schools

Marylhurst alum Paula Radich is stepping out of retirement to become interim superintendent for Salem-Keizer school district in
January 2014.

Excerpt from an article by Herb Swett in the Keizertimes,
December 24, 2013.

Paula A. Radich, who retired last year as superintendent of the Newberg School District, was named interim superintendent of the Salem-Keizer district. Radich will hold the interim position from
January 1 through June 30, 2014.

Radich received a bachelor of arts degree in language arts and elementary education from Marylhurst College (now Marylhurst University) in 1969. She received a master of science in education degree educational administration and reading from Portland State University in 1974 and a doctor of education degree in educational administration from Washington State University in 1992.

Radich said in her resume that in Newberg she "implemented a governance model characterized by frequent and timely communication, transparency, integrity and accountability."

Working with the board of directors, she said, she "developed two cycles of strategic plans emphasizing public engagement. Strategic plans focused on student achievement goals, career and college readiness and professional and leadership development for all staff."

Radich reported having implemented Common Core standards one year early and reduced the district's dropout rate from 6.5 percent in 2000 to 2.2 percent in 2011. She said six of the nine schools in the Newberg district were rated outstanding on the 2011-12 Annual Oregon Report Card.

Honors listed in her resume included Oregon Superintendent of the Year in 2010.
