To our Stag community,

We are reaching out to share that Travis Hanson, our superintendent, has accepted the same position in the Mead School District, effective July 1, 2023. Travis has worked in our district office for eighteen years, the past ten as our superintendent. We greatly appreciate his service to children and families in this community, his leadership, and the many ways he has partnered with and supported staff to provide our children with exceptional educational experiences.

We will work efficiently and thoughtfully in the days ahead to engage district staff, students, families, and the greater Deer Park community in the process of choosing a new superintendent. The Board will meet in a special session later this week to discuss options and next steps. We are committed to providing clear and consistent communication throughout the process.

We want to assure everyone that we intend to gather input from all stakeholders regarding the qualifications you would like to see in the next DPSD superintendent. More information will be coming soon!

For our Children,
Your Board of Directors
