After a national search, the Tigard-Tualatin School District (TTSD) School Board announced today that Dr. Iton-Etok O Udosenata will be the District’s new Superintendent beginning July 1, 2024. Dr. Iton-Etok O Udosenata is currently serving as the Deputy Superintendent with the Salem-Keizer School District and will step into the position held by Dr. Sue Rieke-Smith who announced she is retiring at the end of the 2023-2024 school year. 
 

“We are thrilled to welcome Dr. Udosenata to the Tigard-Tualatin School District. Because of his focus on working as a collective to advance student outcomes and his commitment to centering students in every decision, it was clear to the board that Dr. Udosenata would be the perfect leader for our district,” said Board Chair, Tristan Irvin. “His demonstrated ability to foster academic achievement, promote equity, and build collaborative relationships with our parents, community leaders, and local organizations are key areas that will guide our district forward and build on our successes. We are excited to introduce him and his family to the TTSD community, and look forward to our district’s future!”

As a leader, Dr. Udosenata brings a student-centered focus with a commitment to creating systems where all students thrive academically, socially, and emotionally. He brings a knowledge of state-level policy for working with the school board to identify a vision for unifying staff to a collective purpose while maintaining a focus of academic achievement, advancement, and fiscal responsibility.
 

While serving as Deputy Superintendent for the Salem-Keizer School District for four years, Dr. Udosenata accomplishments include working with the bargaining team to successfully settle a contract and as a vital member of the executive team, bridging an $80 million dollar budget shortfall. Additionally, he oversees secondary instruction, student and family services, and the Office of Student Equity, Access, and Advancement. Dr. Udosenata also supervises the Office of Safety Risk and Management Services and has worked to improve safety, risk management, and community engagement strategies to promote school safety and mitigate risk.

 

“I understand the importance, now more than ever, of fostering safe and welcoming schools that nurture our students’ academic and social-emotional needs from the day they enter our classrooms as kindergarteners to when they accept a diploma as graduates. The impact of public education is long-lasting, and as a Superintendent you can expect my best in service of all TTSD students, staff, and community to make the greatest impact possible.” 

Dr. Udosenata
