The Hemet Unified School District's Governing Board announced that it has selected Dr. Steven Lowder as the finalist for the position of District Superintendent. In announcing the selection, Board President Joe Wojcik said the Board was impressed with Dr. OLowder's track record of achievement in each position he has held. "Dr. Lowder believes in building and continuously improving all systems so every child is provided with a strong academic and social foundation that will lead to success in every grade and in their future," said Wojcik.
Dr. Lowder is presently the Superintendent of the Lincoln Unified School District in Stockton in California's Central Valley. He successfully guided a $200 million capital construction bond project that improved facilities throughout the district. He also managed diminishing resources effectively, something the district will be facing in the coming years.
Dr. Lowder earned his B.A. in Liberal Studies from Humboldt State University in 1975, his M.A. in Educational Administration and Supervision in 1985 from Humboldt, and his Doctorate in Educational Policy, Curriculum and Instruction in 1992 from U.S.C. in Los Angeles.
