• CEO Champions

    Our CEO Champions are leaders in industry and the community and help guide our work. They provide an important voice for the superintendent and district leaders in the district’s decision-making process, and to provide the Superintendent with insights, suggestions and perspectives on critical industry and community issues. The CEOs will enable better educational and administrative decisions, and, ultimately, lead to greater student learning and success.
