Interim Superintendent

Riverdale School District

Come to Portland for a year or two.

Riverdale School District, an independent school district within the city of Portland, Oregon, seeks to hire an Interim Superintendent for the upcoming academic school year with a possible continuation into the following year.  Riverdale  has always enjoyed widespread community interest, involvement and support. Today, Riverdale Grade School (K-8) and Riverdale High School (9-12) serve more than 600 families living in a residential, wooded area called Dunthorpe, located seven miles south of downtown Portland, Oregon, and adjacent to the city of Lake Oswego. 

We are a small, innovative school district with a focus on personalized learning.  Please take a moment to learn about us here.
We lean on the benchmarks of the Coalition of Essential Schools as we continue to improve our school culture and practices, including the Habits of Mind which are ways to articulate the type of thinking and emotional dispositions that help students develop their social-emotional intelligence and succeed in school and life. 

We seek a seasoned school superintendent who understands the big picture of school leadership and board governance and who is also ready to roll up sleeves in our small school district.  Applications are now available via this link with a closing date of August 3.  If you are interested in calling Portland home, or if you already do, we would like to hear from you.  Confidential Inquiries to Hank Harris are welcome.
