Dr. JoEtta Gonzales

Following a lengthy search that was initiated in November, 2016, the Casa Grande Elementary School District Governing Board has unanimously selected Dr. JoEtta Gonzales as the next superintendent for the District.  The Board authorized its President and legal counsel to enter contract negotiations with Dr. Gonzales. 

Yesterday, the two finalists for the position took part in school tours and a second round of interviews.  These events were followed by a community forum with over 100 attendees, where candidates had the opportunity to provide background information and to answer prepared questions that were derived from feedback to a community survey completed in January.  Attendees at the forum had the opportunity to complete comment cards with observations about the candidates.  This feedback from the attendees helped to inform the Board’s decision. 

Dr. Gonzales currently serves as an Area Superintendent for the Washoe County School District in Reno, Nevada.  She is expected to begin serving as superintendent no later than July 1, 2017.

The Governing Board members have taken this responsibility very seriously, and their efforts have produced an outstanding new leader for the District.  I look forward to working with Dr. Gonzales as she transitions to this new role.
