    SPS Selects Kyle Kinoshita as Chief of Curriculum, Assessment and Instruction

    Kyle Kinoshita, Ed.D has been selected chief of curriculum, assessment and instruction for Seattle Public Schools (SPS). Kinoshita comes to the position after serving as the executive director of learning and teaching for the Marysville School District for the past nine years.

    The chief of curriculum, assessment and instruction position is critical to students’ success. The position provides the district expertise and innovative leadership for all phases of department services, including professional development, standards, and assessments, as well as development of a curriculum and instructional delivery service model for schools to ensure direct and system-wide services to students.

    Kyle was selected from a field of 21 applicants through a rigorous interview process that included principals, union partners and central office leaders.

    One of the most important reasons Kyle applied for the position is that he is a product of Seattle School District’s central and southeast schools including Bailey Gatzert, Muir, Van Asselt and Rainier Beach elementary schools. 

    Kyle’s own experience has fueled a lifelong commitment to the achievement of equity and elimination of opportunity gaps. Working to help Seattle school leaders serve the historically underserved is a powerful personal motivator to join the district and accomplish the successful construction of a strong system of learning improvement.

    Kyle hopes to develop a deep collaboration around student achievement, the elimination of achievement gaps, and a common language around powerful instruction and rigorous curriculum in all K-12 schools.
