The McMinnville School District in McMinnville, Oregon invites outstanding school leaders to apply for the position of Superintendent of Schools.

Nestled in the heart of wine country in Yamhill County, McMinnville lies 40 miles southwest of Portland. The district serves about 6,700 students in grades kindergarten through 12 and offers free preschool in district schools.

Our district includes six elementary schools, two middle schools and one comprehensive high school. Student achievement across the district has steadily improved over the past dozen years, boosted by robust competitive grant awards, which fund many STEAM programs for students, both during and beyond the school day/year. In 2014, the district was named a National STEM Showcase district by the U.S. Department of Education, one of just three districts across the country to be recognized.

The Oregonian has singled out our district for its remarkable focus on research-based instructional practices and professional learning, success with English language learners, and for its graduation rate, which is among the highest in the state.

Bond construction completed in 2019 includes a new Career Technical Center that supports the Pathways program. With established partnerships with the local business community, the 17 Career Pathways program is a leader in the state.

Accolades include a national Model School designation in 2018; the first gold-certified LEED school in the state; and a 2014 & 2019 elementary school principal of the year for the State of Oregon.

Our population is 60% economically disadvantaged and 14% English learners, and yet our district consistently outperforms SBAC state averages for historically underserved populations.

This is an extraordinary opportunity in of the truly great school districts in America. We hope you consider the possibilities of coming to serve our community.
