Recognized by:  Janel Ruehl

Tell us a bit about what you appreciate about them as an RCB: Superintendent Curtiss Scholl and his staff have provided solid leadership during the COVID pandemic to ensure the safety of students and the community-at-large while also maximizing in-person learning and other important community services.

In 2020, Supt. Scholl allowed an interagency incident management team (IMT) overseeing the Green Ridge Fire to use Sisters Middle School as an incident command post. By assuring his staff that safety protocols around COVID-19 would be adhered to, the IMT was able to use a strategic area for fire command which helped contribute to their success managing the Green Ridge fire and protecting key assets at risk — including the communities of Sisters and Camp Sherman.

Sisters School District was one of eight winners of the 2021 Sisters Community Champion Awards!
