Yupiit School District

Superintendent

The Yupiit Board of Education desires a superintendent that understands, appreciates and will be involved in our local Yup’ik culture. The Board seeks a superintendent that will work to build trusting, positive relationships with employees, regional board members, local advisory board members, and all stakeholders in the three villages of the district (Akiachak, Akiak, and Tuluksak). The applicant will recognize and have experience with the uniquely important role of village school principals and their associated local advisory boards and work to support their success in effectively educating Yupiit students who are connected to their local culture and traditions. The Board is seeking an individual that has demonstrated experience with effective and uniquely appropriate ways of measuring student growth and proficiency that recognizes the learning styles and cultural qualities of indigenous people.

The ideal candidate will be adept and experienced in working with federal, state and local agencies including our tribal governments in a collaborative fashion that promotes meeting the needs of Yupiit student success and academic achievement. Additionally, the superintendent will have the skills to work collaboratively with the Board and school communities and will spend quality time in all three communities. We desire a person who has shown an ability to be creative when resources are scarce; who can motivate and lead without oppressing; who is not afraid to aggressively seek other sources of support for educational programs and school maintenance. It is essential in a small district such as ours that a superintendent knows how to work well with a business office and manage the district resources as effectively and efficiently as possible
