Superintendent Search

On February 22, 2022, Superintendent Dr. Teri Staloch announced she has accepted a new position that will allow her to pursue a career opportunity in the private sector at the end of the 2021-22 school year. Following her announcement, the School Board began the process for a nationwide search for a new Superintendent to begin serving on July 1, 2022. It is the Board's goal to keep the PLSAS community informed about and involved with the search process each step of the way.

Information on this page will be updated throughout the search process. Please check back often.
