Aligned with these priorities, Dr. Larsen-Mitchell has appointed seasoned instructional leader Melissa Gutierrez as deputy superintendent of the Teaching and Learning Unit. Ms. Gutierrez, currently serving as the Transformation Network region superintendent, brings twenty-five years of service with the District. “Ms. Gutierrez’s long-standing dedication to our District and her pivotal role in shaping instructional strategies and processes make her the ideal educator for this crucial position,” said Dr. Larsen-Mitchell. “Her expertise will be instrumental in driving our ongoing efforts to elevate student achievement across all schools.”

Their combined wealth of experience and earned community trust underscores their commitment to advancing educational excellence.

Kevin McPartlin, with twenty-eight years of service in the District, will serve as an associate superintendent of the Education Services Division and Student Athletics and Activities, reporting directly to the Deputy Superintendent of the Teaching and Learning Unit.

Furthermore, Dr. Mike Barton, a twenty-six-year veteran in the District, will serve as Chief of Staff, overseeing the Office of the Chief of Staff, Equity, and Community Partnerships. This move underscores Dr. Larsen-Mitchell’s commitment to fostering connections with staff, partners, and the community and fortifying relationships with key stakeholders.
