Foust Principal Janie Moseley has been named as Owensboro Public Schools’ first Director of Multi-Tiered Support Systems. Moseley will officially move into the new role effective July 1, 2021.
“I feel that there is a moral imperative to have systems in place at every school to ensure that each student is seen and supported as an individual,” Moseley said. “I am excited about the possibility of making an impact at the district level and I can’t wait to help each OPS school find success on behalf of their students through their response to intervention and multi-tiered support system process.”
Moseley is moving to this role after spending the past 15 years as the principal at Foust. She began her career as a classroom teacher at Cravens Elementary School for three years before moving into the curriculum facilitator position at the same school. She then moved to Foust, where she held the same role for three years before being named principal.
Moseley received her Bachelor of Arts degree in elementary education from Kentucky Wesleyan College. She also holds a master’s degree in elementary education with a reading and writing specialization, a Rank I in K-12 Educational Administration from Western Kentucky University, and additional administration certification coursework from the University of Tennessee.
In her new role, Moseley will develop a framework of strong core instruction and behavior supports on a tiered system to support individualized student success. She will be responsible for measuring varying levels of assessment and implement evidence-based instructional practices to raise student achievement.
“Janie’s experience and success as the principal at Foust make her the perfect person to lead our district in raising student achievement across all schools,” said OPS Superintendent Dr. Matthew Constant. “She has made an immeasurable impact on our families in the Foust neighborhood over the past 15 years, and I know she will bring the same passion and expertise to this position that will benefit all students across the district.”
Constant will be meeting with the Foust Elementary Site-Based Council in the coming days to discuss the next steps in a search for the next principal of the school.
