Wyman says Cairns will take LCHS to a new level Continued from page 1 kids feel good about being, they will do well academically.” Superintendent Wendy Wyman said Cairns’ work at DSST shares many similarities with the previous work put into LCHS. Both schools have participated in both the Colorado Department of Education’s Turnaround Network, and also a training course by the Relay Graduate School of Education. What was most exciting about Cairns, Wyman said, was his ability to establish high expectations at every level. “Ben is excited about the Expeditionary Learning approach and making sure that is implemented in a way which encourages academic success,” Wyman said. “Those two things together are going to be so amazing for our kids. They will be able to explore their curiosity, while at the

same time having those high expectations for rigor.” Wyman said Cairns is bilingual, speaking both English and Spanish, and will be dedicated and accessible to the entire academic community. “Looking at Ben’s broad experience, he’s worked with a lot of broad communities,” Wyman said. “He’s committed to this community, both the larger community, and the smaller communities it is made up of.” Wyman said she believes Cairns will be able to take the high school to a new level of success. “I am really excited. I think Ben is exactly the right leader to continue the good work at the high school already done, while creating a real rich learning environment, which will allow us to reach for higher standards.” Current Lake County High School Principal Christina Gosselin will be leaving the district on June 28.
