Iowa School for the Deaf has promoted Tina Caloud to the position of chief academic officer, where she will oversee the academic program. The promotion became effective May 28. Under this appointment, Caloud will maintain her role as outreach director where she established five areas of focus: family resources, assessments, expanded learning program, language resources and literacy.
She earned a master’s degree in educational administration and supervision from Ball State University in Muncie, Ind. Caloud holds a building license (licensed educational administrator). She is a native Iowan and alumna of Iowa School for the Deaf who has worked in deaf education more than 20 years, teaching American Sign Language (ASL) at universities and deaf schools. Prior to joining Iowa School for the Deaf in the fall of 2020, she served as an ASL teacher and ASL specialist at Atlanta Area School for the Deaf and Indiana School for the Deaf.
“I am very pleased with her commitment to school improvement and the overall success of the entire ISD community,” said John Cool, Superintendent of Iowa Education for the Deaf & Blind.
