Cheryl L. Sattler has worked in K-12 education policy since 1994, first as a program evaluator of magnet schools, professional development, science education, informal education, and gender equity for the U.S. Department of Education and the National Science Foundation, among others. She was an education reporter on Capitol Hill during the debate and authorization of No Child Left Behind, editing the Title I Handbook and the Title I Monitor, both publications designed for school district officials responsible for running federally-funded programs for disadvantaged students. She joined the Success for All Foundation/Center for Data-Driven Reform in Education, where she headed policy efforts. She was recruited to become bureau chief over federal education programs in Florida, where she directed Title IA, education for the disadvantaged; Title I Part C, migrant education; Title I Part D, neglected and delinquent students; Title VI, small and rural districts; and Title X, homeless education. She now works directly with school districts as a problem solver and advises companies on federal programs and policy. She is a Ruby Payne trainer, certified program evaluator, and policy junkie.
