Peoria Unified’s Governing Board seeks, as its next superintendent, an experienced leader who has a proven record of improving student achievement, leading excelling schools, attracting and retaining highly- qualified employees and implementing the long-range strategic plan to enhance student success and effectively utilize district assets and facilities.
The board seeks a superintendent who will embrace, understand, and respect traditions, diversity and the culture of the community while continuing to move the district forward as a leader in preK-12 education.
