Corvallis School District is happy to announce Ryan Noss as the new Student Services Director 
beginning July 1, 2015.  He comes to Corvallis from Lebanon School District, where he is currently the Assistant Superintendent, overseeing human resources, curriculum, and instruction and assessment. 

Noss began his career as a Special Education teacher for five years for both Lebanon and Tigard-Tualatin school districts. He continued in Lebanon School District as a Special Programs Consultant for one year before stepping into the principal position at the K-8 Pioneer School for four years. Noss then moved to the Administrator of Program and Student Support where he began to oversee curriculum, instruction, assessment and special education for Lebanon. He was promoted to his current position as Assistant Superintendent in 2011. “Ryan is an outstanding leader who brings integrity, strong communication skills and experience to Corvallis. I am excited for Ryan to join our team,” Prince shared. 

Superintendent Dr. Erin Prince is also pleased to announce current 509J administrator Marcianne Koetje as the new Equity Coordinator effective July 1, 2015. She will replace Alicia Ward-Satey, who was selected as the new principal of Linus Pauling Middle School.

Koetje began her work with the district as a dual language teacher at Garfield Elementary for four years before becoming a literacy coach and instructional facilitator. She stepped in as the assistant principal at Linus Pauling Middle School in 2011 and was appointed as the new Lincoln Elementary Principal two years later.  Koetje will continue to act as a strong bilingual leader who advocates for all students.  Prince said “Marcianne’s passion and focus around equity for all students will undoubtedly enhance our district as she steps into her new role as Equity Coordinator. She will bring strong leadership and focus in serving our Corvallis students and families.”

Published on Friday, May 08, 2015

Corvallis School District selected Alicia Ward-Satey as the new Linus Pauling Middle School principal, effective July 1, 2015.  Ward-Satey currently acts as the Equity Coordinator for 509J at the district office and is honored to lead the dedicated staff, students and families of Linus Pauling.  Superintendent Dr. Erin Prince announced the selection after an interview committee met with several candidates last week and finalists toured and met with staff, students and parents on Thursday prior to a final interview.

Ward-Satey started her career as an English as a Second Language (ESOL) teacher in the Estacada School District for four years.  She continued as an ESOL teacher at Sam Barlow High School, while also teaching Spanish and sheltered health for nine years before becoming the Support Services Department Chair for an additional four years.  Ward-Satey took on increasing leadership role within the Gresham-Barlow School District as an Interim English Language Learned (ELL) Coordinator and ELL Teacher on Special Assignment for several years.  Corvallis School District hired her in 2008 as an Assistant Principal at Corvallis High School to oversee counseling, ELL, Dual Immersion, Social Studies and World Language departments, as well as Response to Intervention (RTI) and Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID).  Ward-Satey was hired as the district’s Equity Coordinator in November 2014. 

Superintendent Prince shared “Alicia exemplifies servant leadership and a relentless focus on supporting the success for all staff and students. She continually rolls up her sleeves and works side by side with staff to ensure a meaningful and rigorous educational experience for students. Alicia is a connector, building strong relationships with community, staff and students.”  

Bryan Traylor named new Franklin School Principal
Published on Monday, May 04, 2015

Superintendent Dr. Erin Prince is pleased to announce Bryan Traylor as the next Franklin principal to school staff and families today. Traylor is currently a principal in the district at Hoover Elementary and will start his new position on July 1, 2015. A selection committee composed of district staff and parent representatives interviewed Traylor last week and are excited to work with a veteran leader who understands the district, Franklin and has nearly 25 years of administration experience K-8.

Traylor started his career as a fourth and sixth grade teacher in Pendleton School District for 12 years before becoming principal of Heppner Elementary and Middle School in the Morrow County School District for two years. He then worked for the Milton-Freewater School District as a principal for 11 years at two elementary schools and a middle school. Traylor joined 509J in July 2004 as the principal at Mountain View Elementary and worked there for three years until moving to Hoover Elementary, where he’s worked for the last eight school years.  “Bryan comes to Franklin with a strong servant leadership model and will undoubtedly transition to his new position eager to listen and carry on the positive learning environment for students,” Prince said.

Superintendent Prince thanks the Franklin community for the feedback during the process and appreciates everyone welcoming Traylor to the Franklin family, where he will truly be a student-first leader.
