As we prepare for the start of the 2020-21 school year, Lindbergh Schools is pleased to announce that Doug Barton will be taking on the role of ARC Coordinator for virtual learners, their families, and ARC staff members.
Barton currently serves as Lindbergh’s STEM Coordinator and has 21 cumulative years of education experience. In addition to developing and providing professional learning for teachers districtwide since 2014, he taught chemistry at Lindbergh High School for 13 years, and has served in administrative roles that include administrative intern for Crestwood Elementary School.
Barton earned a Masters in Education Administration from Missouri Baptist University, a Master of Arts in Teaching from Lindenwood University, and a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry from Rockhurst University. He currently serves on the district’s Teaching and Learning and Technology board advisory committees.
Elementary ARC Support
In his role, Barton will work closely with elementary school principals and ARC teachers to coordinate instruction and support student needs. He serves as the direct contact for elementary families within the ARC program.
4-7 p.m., Aug. 25: Families pick up student devices and take-home kits (more information, including signup, coming soon)
*Note: Webinars will be recorded for those who are unable to attend.
Secondary ARC Support
At the secondary level, Barton will support building principals in ARC programming. However, since ARC classes and programming are integrated into the traditional middle and high school schedules, parents and guardians should continue to reach out directly to building principals as a primary point of contact. In addition, secondary ARC families should participate in school-based back-to-school events.
