The nation’s top special education official is leaving the Obama administration for a job in the private sector.
Alexa Posny, who has served as assistant secretary for the Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services since 2009, will step down from her post at the U.S. Department of Education effective Friday.
She’s leaving to take a job as senior vice president of state and federal programs at Renaissance Learning, a Wisconsin company that sells technology products to schools.
In a statement to Disability Scoop, Posny noted the many hats she’s worn in her role with the Obama administration overseeing everything from regulations affecting toddlers to transition programs and a multi-billion dollar budget.
“I am honored to have been able to serve in this position and to serve this administration as we strive to improve results and outcomes for individuals with disabilities,” Posny said.
