In her new role Wehner will develop, direct and monitor the organization’s development and marketing programs, with an emphasis on providing revenue streams to financially support programs for CSD and our members. Guided by the strategic plan, she will develop partnerships that move forward CSD’s mission and vision. Wehner comes to CSD from Katy Industries, a global manufacturing company.  In her role there, she has been responsible for marketing, product management, and international business for three global manufacturing businesses exporting to over 50 countries. Her experience also includes time with United Parcel Service, where she was responsible for marketing strategy development and product management for 5,000 retail locations of The UPS Store.

Goodman currently serves as the Director of Quality Improvement and Accountability in the Springfield (MO) R-XII School District. In that position, he directs the department responsible for accountability, performance management, program evaluation, online assessment systems, and training leaders and teachers on the effective use of data. Previous to working in Springfield he was a graduate research assistant in the Educational Leadership and Policy Analysis department in the College of Education at the University of Missouri-Columbia and a teacher in the Gasconade County R-1 (Hermann) School District. A frequent presenter on assessment systems and leveraging data for instructional and organizational improvement at state and national conferences, Goodman has a doctorate of philosophy in educational leadership and policy analysis from the University of Missouri-Columbia. At CSD, he will have various roles that will include evaluation of CSD’s programs, oversight of strategic plan implementation, and serving as a resource to CSD member districts in the strategic areas of assessment, evaluation, and the use of data.

“The addition of these two highly-skilled professionals is in line with the objectives set forth in our strategic plan,” said Senti.
