Superintendent's Office

The Superintendent carries out policies approved by the School Board and actions taken by the Board, and is responsible for directing the district's staff. The Superintendent provides leadership and guidance for the classified and certified administrators throughout the school district, and is ultimately responsible for all district operations.

We encourage families/community members to contact the school or department directly to resolve concerns. We believe those directly involved in running our schools and programs on a day-to-day basis are best able to address needs. If an issue cannot be resolved at the school level, the Superintendent's Cabinet leaders are available points of contact at the District Office.
