Administrative Position Posting

Closing Date for Applications: March 31, 2014 

Employment Begins: July 1, 2014

Three Rivers School District is seeking an education leader to serve as superintendent of schools starting July 1, 2014.

Three Rivers School District serves all of Josephine County (with the exception of the city of Grants Pass) and a small portion of Jackson County (Applegate School), covering over 1200 square miles. Aptly named, Three Rivers School District serves students in three distinct attendance areas: Hidden Valley, Illinois Valley, and North Valley, which coincide with the Applegate, Illinois, and Rogue rivers. The district is made up of several small communities, and has an operating budget of $42 million. Three Rivers is a Professional Learning Communities (PLC) district, uses district-wide collaboration to develop common formative assessments, and offers rich professional development opportunities for staff.

Located in Southwestern Oregon, Josephine County is bordered on the south by California and the Pacific coast is just two hours away. The area is mountainous, but also has two major valleys and three scenic rivers, world renowned for whitewater rafting and fishing. Many parks are situated on the Rogue River. Josephine County is home to the Grave Creek Covered Bridge, the Applegate Trail Interpretive Center, Hellgate Canyon, Kalmiopsis Wilderness, Oregon Caves National Monument, Lake Selmac, WildLife Images, and the Wolf Creek Inn.
