    Kyrene Superintendent Search 

    The Kyrene Governing Board is seeking a highly qualified candidate to lead the Kyrene School District to continued success. The Board has identified the goals of stability and consistency to guide the search for a new superintendent. With those goals in mind, the Board decided to begin with an internal search, to produce candidates familiar with the Kyrene vision, mission, culture and community.

    The Kyrene Governing Board would like to thank all of the staff members who participated in the feedback forums and all of the families, employees and community members who took time to give input through the Superintendent Search Survey. The survey is now closed.
