KPB School District 

School board selects super


At a special board of education meeting on March 3, the Kenai Peninsula Borough School District school board voted, with unanimous consent, to offer Sean Dusek the position of superintendent of schools.

“I am humbled and honored to be selected as the next superintendent of our district,” said Dusek, upon hearing the board decision. “We are on a journey of continuous improvement that will positively impact our students and enhance how they are being prepared for their future. It is exciting to be able to continue all of our good work with such outstanding students, staff, and communities in this capacity. I am very much looking forward to this opportunity.”

An Alaskan educator since 1991, throughout his entire career Dusek demonstrated a commitment to the Kenai Peninsula Borough School District. He has served the students of KPBSD as a teacher, assistant principal, principal, director, assistant superintendent, and now, superintendent. He holds a bachelor of science degree in secondary education – math, and a master of education in educational leadership.

Superintendent Dusek’s focus is to ensure all students in KPBSD are prepared for their future. Problem solving, effective communication, respectful collaboration and creativity are critical skills all students must develop while in our district. When these skills are combined with a solid academic foundation, including information and technology skills, students will be able to pursue all opportunities available to them upon graduation.

Board President Joe Arness said, “We have every confidence that Superintendent Dusek will be able to carry on the tradition of excellence we have come to expect in our school district. Thank you to everyone who provided public comment during this process.” Arness will meet with Dusek to negotiate the terms of employment, and bring a contract to the board of education for approval. The superintendent of schools position begins July 1, 2015. Dusek has been the interim superintendent since Dec. 1.
