Ashley Stolhand, currently an instructional facilitator for the Department of Learning and Innovation, has accepted the role as Gig Harbor High School's new assistant principal.

Stolhand is a veteran educator, and her values of team building, along with her skills as an organized leader with experience across many cultures made her stand out as a candidate for this position.

β€œI’m excited to join the GHHS team and looking forward to the adventure ahead. I love the deep sense of community at the school, and the commitment of staff and students to learning. Roll Tides, and game on!” Stolhand said.

She is currently working towards earning her Principal Certificate from Gonzaga University, and her Doctorate in Educational Leadership from Capella University.

Innovating. Inspired.

At the end of 2022, OpenAI released a new tool called ChatGPT. While many school districts have considered blocking and banning the use of this new tool from their schools, at PSD we considered how we could innovate with ChatGPT to create more educational opportunities.

When the second half of the 2022-2023 school year started, PSD staff began visiting classrooms to co-teach lessons on AI using ChatGPT at multiple grade levels. A Gig Harbor High School English class spent a week in January working on β€œdeveloping a critical eye” by using ChatGPT to learn about how AI learns human language, how to spot AI generated misinformation, how to identify deep fakes online, and how to use AI for beneficial purposes.
