Gervais School Board selects Dandy Stevens as the next Superintendent

 

Concluding its search for a superintendent to succeed Matt Henry whose term ends June 30, 2019, the Gervais  School District Board of Directors is pleased to announce that DiandaDandy” L. Stevens has been selected to be the district's next Superintendent effective July 1, 2019.  Stevens and the Board are working on the terms of a tentative agreement that will be finalized at a public meeting. 

 

“After an extensive search process that included input from the board, staff and community members, the Board is excited to introduce Dandy Stevens as the next superintendent of the Gervais School District,” Board Chair Mike Jirges said. “We are confident that her vast experience, deep knowledge of curriculum, management skills and innovative thinking will expand the quality of education throughout the district.”  The Board reviewed candidate applications and conducted first-round interviews with the assistance of a screening committee which included administrators, staff, and community members.  The Board, with continued assistance from administrators and staff members, then conducted site visits of three candidate finalists, followed by a second-round interview process, and comprehensive tour of the district, and a community Meet-and-Greet forum.  After concluding their review process by investigating the final candidates' backgrounds and references, the board selected Stevens as the next Superintendent of the Gervais School District.  All those contacted as references had high praise for Stevens’ knowledge about education and ability to build relationships.

 

For the last five years, Stevens has served as the Assistant Superintendent in the Silver Falls School District. Before moving over to their district office, Stevens served as a middle school principal, a high school assistant principal responsible for both curriculum and discipline, and language arts and S.O.S. trainer for Gervais High School and the WESD, respectively.  Stevens also has international teaching experience, having taught middle and high school students in both Honduras and Guam. Stevens was awarded the Oregon Curriculum Assistant Principal of the Year award in 2011.  She carries a Masters in Curriculum and Instruction from Portland State and a B.A. in Journalism/Public Relations from the University of Oregon.

 

“I am so excited to return to the Gervais School District in this new leadership role. The commitment of staff and parents to students' success was evident during my site visit and I was overwhelmed by the kindness and enthusiasm displayed during every interaction” Stevens said. “I am looking forward to working with everyone to continue to provide an outstanding educational experience for every student in the district.”
