Dr. Lynn Boyer is New Assistant Executive Director for Professional Development Services at the Council for Exceptional Children
April  19, 2010 - Dr. Lynn Boyer has joined the Council for Exceptional Children as Assistant Executive Director for Professional Development Services, bringing a broad range of special education-related leadership experience to her new position.
Most recently, Dr. Boyer was West Virginia's state director for special education and executive director for the Office of Special Programs, Extended and Early Learning within the state's Department of Education.  In addition to overseeing all special education programs in the state, Dr. Boyer supervised the statewide universal preschool program and the federal Reading First grant.
"Dr. Boyer is very well respected in the field of special education and is an excellent addition to our executive team at CEC," said Bruce A. Ramirez, executive director of CEC.  "She brings tremendous experience and leadership to the organization and we are delighted to have her at the helm of our professional development services team."
...
As state director of special education, Dr. Boyer oversaw significant grants and directed program improvement initiatives in areas such as early reading, response to intervention, teacher effectiveness and leadership, disproportionality, and alternate academic achievement standards and assessments. 
Dr. Boyer will oversee the CEC service team responsible for the annual convention and expo, publications, Exceptional Children and TEACHING Exceptional Children journals, and online learning, as well as forms of professional development and grants related to them.
This represents Dr. Boyer's return to CEC's Headquarters Office staff.  Prior to 2004, she was the senior director for the National Clearinghouse for Professions in Special Education and then the Council's senior director for program development.
Dr. Boyer also is the former local director of special education programs and services in Fairfax County (Virginia) Public Schools.

WVSDB Superintendent Lynn Boyer said she has met with the caretakers and local teachers union several times to talk about compromises such as providing more time for them to obtain the degree but said that, after researching deaf and blind institutions in surrounding states, requiring degrees is the best move.
In all cases, the differentiation between the school and the home was not there. It was very much a seamless set of expectations. So that gave us some confidence that we were, in fact, on the right path, Boyer said. I fully expect that many familiar faces will be with [the students] in August. It is not our intention to do away with jobs or people, but to increase the quality of teachers and provide support to do that.
The controversy over the new degree requirement is not the only issue the WVSDB has struggled with recently. While Boyer has pushed for new facilities and more funding for renovations, it continues to be unclear which state entity is financially obligated to the school.
