Callum is currently leading two statewide cohorts of districts in Indiana and Tennessee focused on strategic and equitable use of ESSER stimulus funds. As part of this cohort work, he has helped districts consider staffing and scheduling shifts to sustain tutoring models during the school day, and worked alongside leaders as they hone their external narrative and communications strategies around their use of federal dollars. He is also part of a team working with Metro Nashville Public Schools on a long-term project to build a shared fact based about resource use in the district and leverage that fact base to inform shifts that will enable to district to achieve its “build toward” vision for school.
Previously, Callum has worked with Dallas ISD to support the design and implementation of an extended school year. Callum’s work with Dallas specifically focused on leveraging additional learning time as a mechanism for addressing disrupted and missed learning due to COVID-19, as well as increasing teacher collaboration time.
Before joining ERS, Callum was a Data Analyst at KIPP Massachusetts, where he worked to support the district’s teachers and leaders to analyze and respond to student data. Before that, Callum taught 7th grade math and science at the Edward Brooke school in East Boston.
Outside of ERS, Callum loves to hike and bike, play the guitar and go to concerts, and watch the Premier League on Saturday mornings.
