    Education is the heart of our mission and the Department of Learning leads this effort for Noblesville Schools. 

    Our Co-Executive Directors of Learning, Dr. Jennifer Townsend and Ryan Rich, Ed.S., are responsible across the district for: 

    • Curriculum
    • Instruction
    • Special Education
    • Student Services 
    • Technology

    Additionally, the Department of Learning oversees educator professional growth and evaluation, high-ability programming, media services, English language learner support, counseling, and several federal grants that enhance student academics. 

    This collaborative organizational structure puts learning at the center of all district departments that serve students.
