Meet Our Next Special Services Director

The assistant director of Special Services is stepping up to lead the department.

Becca Anderson has been chosen for the director post, pending school board approval.

She replaces Matt Scott, who left the position to become Kennewick School District’s new assistant superintendent for curriculum, assessment and professional development.

“Becca has been an important member of the special education administrative team for the past five years. She understands the needs of students and teachers alike and will do a great job offering continued leadership to the Special Services department,” Scott said.

As Special Services director, Anderson will coordinate and oversee the delivery of special education services throughout the Kennewick School District.

She joined the district in 2004 as a developmental therapy teacher at Westgate Elementary School, a job she held for 10 years. She also worked as a special education case manager at Phoenix and Delta high schools and as an administrative intern in Special Services.

In 2014, she became the special education coordinator at Keewaydin Discovery Center, the district’s special education preschool. In 2018, she became assistant Special Services director.

She holds bachelor’s degrees in elementary education and early childhood education from Washington State University and a master’s degree in curriculum and instruction from the University of Montana. She has a special education endorsement from the University of Montana and a program/principal certification from WSU.
