Posted on 11/26/2018
OVERLAND PARK, Kan. –Jefferson County Schools Chief Human Resources Officer Joseph Pettiford garnered some national attention last month when he spoke at the American Association of School Personnel Administrators.
“This opportunity represents a national stage where a dialogue on issues that impact all secondary and higher education alike can take place and solutions can be offered to help address a pending crisis.,” Petifford said. “It is an honor to represent Jefferson County Schools and serve my professional colleagues from around the country through this venue.”
Pettiford presented at the Association’s 80th Annual Conference in Minneapolis, Minn. on October 9 – 12, 2018. 
Pettiford’s session entitled, “The Looming Leadership Gap and How to Address It,” spoke to the increasing number of Baby Boomers retiring, large number of principals leaving their positions after only three years, and how to prepare for the new challenge of developing the next generation of K-12 leaders.
“This issue is accelerating,” Petifford said. “There is a dire need for organizations to innovate, transform, and re-think past practices and opt for a different paradigm.”
Pettiford is responsible for creating innovative ways to deliver services and information to employees and establishing a culture of intention, systems and trainings that will ensure educators deliver the highest level of instructions and impact to students.
