Quincy School District Selects John Boyd as Next Superintendent

John Boyd 150Quincy School District’s Board of Directors selected John Boyd from a field of three finalists to serve as the district’s next superintendent. Mr. Boyd currently serves as Executive Director of Instructional Leadership in Highline School District in Burien. Highline School District has a student enrollment of more than 18,000 students.

“The board was impressed with Mr. Boyd’s work in his current position as Executive Director of Instructional Leadership, where he focused on working one-on-one with principals to develop their instructional leadership and help them improve student achievement,” said Board President Tricia Lubach. “His work with principals includes using student data, meaningful professional feedback and ongoing professional development to ensure that every student receives the support and rigorous instruction needed to succeed academically. He has a strong background in ELL (English Language Learners) and is bilingual in English and Spanish, which is a good fit for Quincy School District, where almost 86% of students are Hispanic/Latino and many speak Spanish as their native language.” Mr. Boyd received high ratings from the participants who provided feedback to the board throughout the search process, including parents, community members, students and QSD staff members.

Mr. Boyd has worked in the Seattle and Edmonds School Districts since 1992, including three years in his current position, where he focuses on instructional leadership, school operations and working with the Senior Leadership Team.  Previously, he was Principal of Chief Sealth International High School for seven years and Principal of the Secondary Bilingual Orientation Center for four years.  He has teaching and administrative experience at elementary, middle and high school levels, including English Language Learners (ELL) and bilingual instruction. Mr. Boyd is bilingual in English and Spanish.

Current QSD superintendent, Dr. Burton Dickerson, is retiring at the end of the 2013-2014 school year after leading the district for seven years. The board contracted with Northwest Leadership Associates to assist with the superintendent search.
