Susan Perkins Weston ’81

westin.jpgSusan Perkins Weston ’81 received the Vision Award from the Kentucky Association of School Councils (KASC) last fall. Weston, who was executive director of KASC for 13 years, was honored for her years of service to education reform. An attorney and education policy expert, Weston’s analysis of test score data identified some of Kentucky’s earliest examples of high poverty, high-performance schools and has encouraged continuing attention to achievement gap issues. The Prichard Committee for Academic Excellence has published three of her works as citizens’ guides to school-based decision-making, school budgets, and state assessment and accountability. Currently, she is an independent consultant working on Kentucky education issues, including achievement and school finances. Weston has also worked for the Pennsylvania Office of Consumer Advocate and the United States Department of Education.
