    IMPORTANT MESSAGE from Governing Board President Cathleen O’Neil Frantz.

    April 1, 2021

    Dear Alhambra Staff, Families, and Community,

    I write to you on behalf of the Alhambra Governing Board to inform you that the Board has received a letter of resignation from Mr. Mark Yslas, our Superintendent.  His resignation will be effective June 30, 2021.  Mr. Yslas has accepted an opportunity to work as a Superintendent in another Arizona school district, and we wish him nothing but the best in that new endeavor in his career.

    As we celebrate the past successes under Mr. Yslas’s leadership, we stay steadfast in our focus toward our future and the direction we are headed together on behalf of our students and community.  We will begin work immediately to find the most highly qualified individual to help lead us as our Superintendent in the coming years. The Governing Board is scheduled to meet immediately (Thursday evening, April 1, 2021), to engage a professional search firm to help us recruit and hire a Superintendent who best fits our current mission and vision for our school district.

     I assure you that I, and my fellow board members, will continue to encourage transparent and inclusive leadership that values feedback from all of you as stakeholders in this school district.  We will continue our work under the current strategic plan and will continue to update those goals to meet the needs of our students today, and beyond.  We will continue to value our staff and employees, striving to continue our tradition as a great school district to work with and grow professionally.

    As we continue through this process of recruiting and selecting our next Superintendent, you have my commitment that the process of selection will be transparent and inclusive.  These are challenging times in public education, but with those challenges comes optimism and excitement about the opportunities that lie ahead.  We will soon have another outstanding leader to help guide us in this journey.


    Cathleen O’Neil Frantz

    Governing Board President
