Our school district is located in a spectacular part of the Puget Sound, just minutes from Seattle. We’re a growing learning community of 20,000 students known for our top-rated schools that include: AP, CTE, ECE, ELL, Highly Capable, IB, Special Education and “Big Picture” programs. Our 26 schools, positioned across 110 square miles and within seven municipalities, serve a community that is diversifying in wonderful ways. We enjoy incredible levels of parental involvement and most of our schools have 100% PTSA membership. The broader community is highly engaged with us as business members help shape career curriculum, and voters consistently pass school finance ballot measures.

Less than 5% of school districts nationwide share this distinction. 
In our new Executive Director of Middle Schools, we are seeking a strong, visionary and collaborative leader who will be responsible for and provide leadership to the continued development, ongoing implementation and evaluation of middle school staff and educational programs.
