Two new hires have expanded a focus on special education at Noblesville Schools.
Earlier this month, the district announced the hiring of Erin Rood and Amy Roberts as co-directors of special education. The position formerly was held by Mark Booth, who is now serving the district in an analytical compliance role.
Rood will oversee special education at the elementary level, and Roberts will oversee special education at the middle schools and Noblesville High School.
District officials said the change eliminates the position of assistant director of special education.
“Erin and Amy are both highly qualified, well-respected, compassionate leaders,” Associate Supt. Dave Mundy said. “I’m confident they will be a strong team in providing our students, staff and families exceptional support, service and guidance.”
Rood began Jan. 8, and Roberts began Jan. 21. Roberts was most recently the assistant director of special services for Carmel Clay Schools. Before joining CCS, she worked 10 years as assistant special education director at Avon Community Schools.
Rood, a former special education teacher, came to Noblesville Schools from Sheridan Community Schools, where she served as the district’s special education director.
Roberts and Rood have master’s degrees and exceptional needs licenses from Ball State University.
