The Alaska Association of Secondary School Principals has selected Vaughn Dosko, Assistant Principal of Kenai Middle School, as the Alaska Assistant Principal of the Year for 2010-11.
Dosko's interest and leadership in student assessment data led to the adoption of a Student Progress Monitoring Program. The program aids in identifying and helping struggling students. The performance of students at Kenai Middle School has progressed from below proficient to thriving in all categories in the past five years. This model is now used throughout the Kenai Peninsula Borough School District.
Alaska Assistant Principal of the Year recognition is based on performance and outstanding leadership. State honorees are selected by a statewide committee based on how well they have demonstrated leadership excellence.
Dosko is now eligible for consideration as a candidate for the 2011 NASSP/Virco National Assistant Principal of the Year. In addition, Dosko will attend the Assistant Principal of the Year Forum and Awards Banquet in Washington, D.C., March 30 -- April 2, 2011.
Dosko received his Bachelor of Arts in Special Education and Elementary Education in 1995 from Minot State University and his Masters in Education, in Education Administration, from the University of Idaho in 2000. He is currently working on his Superintendent endorsement through University of Alaska Anchorage.
Dosko is a member of the Kenai Peninsula Administrators Association, the Alaska Association of Secondary School Principals and the National Association of Secondary School Principals.
