Superintendent Update
Posted on 06/19/2018
Steve KingCoupeville School District is proud to announce that Steve King will be our new Superintendent. He is currently the Assistant Superintendent in the Oak Harbor School District and comes to us with a wealth of educational leadership knowledge, a proven record of guiding high performing schools and an active interest in living in a small community.

Originally from Friday Harbor, Steve started his education career as a PE and Social Studies teacher in the Mount Baker School District, with approximately 1,900 students, in Deming, WA. In 2003, he became the Vice Principal and then the Principal at Mt Baker High School. He moved to Oak Harbor in 2014 to become the Assistant Superintendent where he has been instrumental in many of the innovative and progressive changes within the Oak Harbor School District.

While he thoroughly enjoys his current position at Oak Harbor, he is ready to return to the small-community school district.

“Working in schools where you know the staff and students by name and can provide personalized education for each child is crucial for me. The sense of small town pride that exists in small communities is difficult to replicate in larger districts.”

As a positive, energetic, thoughtful leader, Steve is ready to build upon the successes that Coupeville Schools has achieved and move us into a new era of learning and growth.

Steve is replacing our outgoing Superintendent, Jim Shank. Dr. Shank has taken a Superintendent position in the Cassia School District in Idaho.

Thank you to the staff, students, parents and community members who participated in the selection of our Superintendent. Your insight and input were invaluable in helping the Board select the best candidate for our District.
