A Conversation with Pajaro Valley Superintendent Michelle Rodriguez and Linda Diamond of CORE

The Center for the Collaborative Classroom (CCC) recently interviewed Michelle Rodriguez, EdD, superintendent of Pajaro Valley Unified School District (PVUSD) in Watsonville, California and Linda Diamond, president of the Consortium on Reaching Excellence in Education (CORE).  These remarkable literacy leaders have worked together for years using CCC’s SIPPS (Systematic Instruction in Phonological Awareness, Phonics, and Sight Words) curriculum as a central driver in the quest to get all students reading at grade level by the end of third grade.

In this interview with Dr. Kelly Stuart and Dr. Gina Fugnitto of Collaborative Classroom, Dr. Rodriguez and Linda Diamond share their insights about the current reality of distance learning, how and why SIPPS is a key component of PVUSD’s impressive achievements in improving student literacy outcomes, and how a strong change-management approach has positioned PVUSD for long-term success.
