Chief of Staff
Sujie Shin serves as the Chief of Staff for the California Collaborative for Educational Excellence (CCEE). In this role, Shin leads the capacity-building of both internal and external teams to incorporate research and evidence-based strategies in providing technical assistance to districts, county offices, and charter schools. She oversees evaluation and accountability initiatives to ensure that practices are in place for continuous reviews of information to assess impact and refine next steps. In addition, she works closely with Local Education Agency (LEA) partners to provide direct support around the development, use, and refinement of student data review systems to drive changes in classroom instructional practice.
Prior to joining the CCEE, Shin served as the Co-Director of Research for the Standards, Assessment, and Accountability Services program at WestEd, where she managed the National Center on Standards and Assessment Implementation. In this role, she provided technical assistance and research support to states and districts in the implementation and evaluation of their new standards, assessments, and accountability systems. A fundamental aspect of this work included guidance to states to ensure the alignment of standards to assessments and instructional practice.
Shin also previously worked as the Deputy Chief of Assessment and Accountability for the District of Columbia Public Schools, where she oversaw the development and administration of assessments and accountability metrics for the district. While at DCPS, Shin successfully led the process of transitioning the district’s summative assessments and interim assessments to the Common Core, and expanding assessment coverage in both elementary and high school grades and subjects. She also worked with school leaders to implement a district-wide process of data review following each of the interim assessment administrations.
Shin has held educational assessment and research positions in Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, and New York. She earned a Master of Arts degree in Policy Research, Evaluation and Measurement from the University of Pennsylvania and a Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology from the University of California, Berkeley. Her career in education began as a teacher at Norwood Elementary School in the Los Angeles Unified School District.
