Dr. Alexa Allman was recently sworn in as the new superintendent of the Deer Park School District. This formal step solidified her position and marked the official beginning of her tenure.

Dr. Alexa Allman was sworn in at the Board of Directors’ meeting, on July 10th, at 6pm. 

On April 10th, the Deer Park School District Board of Directors unanimously chose Dr. Alexa Allman as the next Superintendent of the Deer Park School District, replacing Travis Hanson. Dr. Allman, who was formerly Assistant Superintendent in Deer Park, has also worked as a district-level HR specialist and a building administrator in the Bellevue School District. School board President Eric Keller and member Lindsay Lofstrom praised Dr. Allman’s dedication, communication skills, and community engagement.

In May, Dr. Allman kindly sat down for an interview with the Deer Park Gazette, offering valuable insights to help familiarize the public with her. In the interview, she expressed her aim to connect with the community and foster unity while improving facilities and maintaining the district’s small-town charm. She prioritizes strengthening teaching and learning, emphasizing the importance of community involvement and volunteer programs. Dr. Allman’s teaching background, particularly in middle school, positions her well to lead this initiative effectively. She understands the value of family and community and seeks to enhance student’s educational experiences through engagement. Plans are underway to transform the elementary school into a modern hub to accommodate a growing student population and serve as a community center. By embracing growth and prioritizing community engagement, the district aims to provide quality education while preserving its close-knit atmosphere.

“I really want to get to know this community at a deeper level. I’m running some opportunities over the next couple of months and through the summer, to get to know folks.” Dr. Allman said regarding her plans for working through the summer in our interview.
