LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Dena Dossett has been named the new chief of data management, planning and evaluation for JCPS. The official announcement was made at 11 a.m. Monday. 

According to a news release from JCPS, the cabinet-level position is responsible for overseeing the collection and analysis of data that drives the district’s student assignment, pupil personnel, resource development, educational assessment and program evaluation functions.

She replaces Bob Rodosky who retired at the end of the last school year. 

Dossett has served as JCPS director of planning in the Data Management Division since 2010, and has been with JCPS since 1999. In her most recent role, she has coordinated the district’s improvement plan, directed JCPS’ program evaluation work and managed the student assignment plan, demographics and student services units.

She collaborates with the Kentucky Department of Education, community agencies and schools to help ensure they have the tools and resources to increase student achievement.

“Dossett has excelled at providing board members, district leadership and individual schools with the critical data and insightful analysis needed to continually improve the services we provide to nearly 101,000 students in Jefferson County,” Hargens said in a news release. “She is a proven, service-oriented leader with an exacting analytic mind who is outstanding at researching and solving complex issues through data analysis.”

Hargens still has three jobs to fill on her cabinet: chief communications officer, chief business officer and chief academic officer. On Monday, Hargens said those positions will be filled "soon" -- before the end of 2015. 

Dewey Hensley stepped down from his position as chief academic officer earlier this month, In a scathing resignation letter, Hensley wrote "it has been a challenge to be heard above the 'noise' of indecision, the circling buzz of perception, and the hammer strikes to fabricate an image."
