The Eugene School District announced Monday that Superintendent Heather Cordie, current superintendent for the Sherwood School District, is one of three finalists being considered for the superintendent position in Eugene, scheduled to start July 1, 2015.

Cordie, who earned her Doctorate in Educational Leadership degree from George Fox University in 2013, is serving in her fifth year at Sherwood as superintendent.  Prior, she was the assistant superintendent for the Redmond School District from 2007-2010.  “I am so appreciative to be considered by Eugene for this important role, and to be able to stand among the other two candidates that I know to be esteemed, highly qualified leaders,” said Dr. Cordie.

When asked about the potential career change opportunity for Superintendent Cordie, the Chair of the Sherwood School Board of Directors, Sue Hekker, responded by saying, “Dr. Cordie does an exemplary job in her role as Sherwood’s superintendent.  She has worked tirelessly to move our district forward in many areas.  Although we would be very sorry to lose her as our superintendent, we completely support her desire to take on a new role in a larger district.”  The Eugene School District is considerably larger in size with over 16,000 students, compared to Sherwood’s approximate 5,000.  

Eugene reported that that they will choose from the final candidates in the spring.
