Superintendent Search

Consultants propose superintendent search timeline

With the announced retirement of current superintendent, Dr. Timothy Yeomans in August 2020, the Puyallup School District Board of Directors has begun the process of selecting a new district leader with the help of Northwest Leadership Associates.

Beginning September 11, 2019, a formal announcement of the open position and job description will be posted on the school district website. The timeline concludes with a decision to be made at the regularly scheduled meeting of the PSD Board of Directors on Monday, January 27, 2020.

The superintendent search process will include several opportunities for stakeholders to participate. Parents, staff, students, and community members will all find ways to be engaged and will be encouraged to provide commentary and suggestions.

“We are going to expect that engagement opportunities will be wide and deep as part of this process,” said Board President Chris Ihrig. “This is a conversation for all of us.”Mark Venn, Michael Keaton
