Jeremy Lyon, who served for five years as superintendent of the Hillsboro School District, is being considered by the Sherwood School Board to lead the upcoming 2022-23 school year. The school board will hold a special meeting and virtual interview with Lyon at 3 p.m., Thursday, June 2.

The meeting and interview will be streamed online on the district's YouTube channel.

The need of an interim leader comes shortly after Sherwood Superintendent Heather Cordie announced that she would be leaving the district for a position in Beaverton. Cordie, who has served in Sherwood for the past 12 years, was named Beaverton's new deputy superintendent of teaching and learning.

In a letter to the school board this week, Lyon said that as Hillsboro superintendent, he made a few decisions that have helped to shape Washington County schools, namely his decision to promote Mike Scott, Hillsboro's current superintendent, and Gustavo Balderas, who was recently named the new superintendent of the Beaverton School District, to top administrative positions in his cabinet. He also served as president of OSAA from 2006 to 2007, at a time when it was expanding the number of school district classifications.

"I found the education community in Oregon to be warm, welcoming, and very close-knit," Lyon wrote.

Prior to service in Hillsboro, Lyon was superintendent of the Coos Bay School District. He served as the head of Hillsboro schools until 2009, when he took a position in Texas.

While in Texas, one of Lyon's positions was serving as superintendent of the Frisco Independent School District, a fast-growing district near Dallas which grew by 20,000 students during his tenure, he said. Lyon told the school board it was the fastest growing school district in the nation at one time. In addition, Lyon helped the district forge partnerships with several professional sports leagues, including the Dallas Cowboys, FC Dallas (the Major League Soccer team owned by Hunt Sports Group), the Professional Golfers' Association, as well as Baylor-Scott & White Hospital and others.
