New Superintendent Search Begins

The Pendleton School District is beginning its search for a new superintendent. Jon Peterson, current superintendent, will retire at the end of the 2015-16 school year. The Pendleton School Board has contracted with the company, Window to Leadership LLC, to conduct the search.

In November, a survey was done to seek input about the qualifications members of the Pendleton community want in the new superintendent and to identify strengths and areas for improvement in the district. Also, a public meeting and meetings with staff were held to gather input.

A report of the overall survey and meeting results will be submitted to the school board for its consideration in developing a profile for prospective candidates and use in search literature.

For more information about the superintendent search, please contact Tami Calvert at the Pendleton School District Office at 541-276-6711 or
