Although no official announcement has been made, Delta Wind has confirmed with Delta Greely School Board President Richard Mauer that Shaun Streyle has been selected to succeed Laura Jackson as superintendent.

The School Board met in executive session this afternoon to interview the three candidates; Streyle, who is currently assistant superintendent for the Copper River School District in Glennallen; Brett Stirling, who is currently the principal at Delta High School; and Christopher Aguirre, who is currently assistant superintendent for the North Slope Borough School District.

Streyle has held the assistant superintendent position for the Copper River School District since June of 2017, and currently serves as acting superintendent. Previously he was simultaneously principal at both the Glennallen High School and Elementary School, which both reside in the same building. Prior to becoming principal of those schools, he was principal at the Kenny Lake School. He began his career with the Copper River School District in 2012 as an elementary teacher in the Kenny Lake School.

Prior to joining the Copper River School District, Streyle was an elementary school teacher with the Bering Strait School District. He has a Bachelor of Education degree from Northern State University in Aberdeen South Dakota, a Master’s in Education Leadership from the University of Alaska Southeast, and recently completed his superintendent endorsement certificate from there as well.

Attempts to reach Streyle Friday evening were unsuccessful.
