The ASK Academy Governing Council would like to announce the hiring of Dr. Alexandra Boyd for the newly-created position of Chief Executive Officer (CEO) for the school year 2020-21.

Dr. Boyd is currently the Director of Evaluation for the Arkansas Department of Education and has recently also served there as the Public School Program Coordinator for Charter Schools, supporting all the charter schools in the state. She has an earned doctorate in Education Policy, a Master’s degree in Teaching and a Bachelor’s degree in Political Science and International Studies.
