Dana Pedersen is the new special services director for the Silver Falls School District. Pedersen replaces Linda Brown who is leaving the district after nine years to serve as a special education specialist at the Oregon Department of Education. Pedersen was a special education teacher in the SFSD for many years before accepting a position in the Salem-Keizer School District a year and a half ago. She begins her new position on February 16. We are glad to welcome Dana back.
