IUSD Superintendent Terry Walker to Visit Greater Irvine Chamber Sept. 5
Tuesday, August 27, 2019
Terry Walker, superintendent of schools for the Irvine Unified School District (IUSD)—one of the fastest-growing school districts in the nation—will be speaking with business and community leaders gathering for the Greater Irvine Chamber’s Government Affairs Committee meeting on Thursday, Sept. 5, 8 – 9:30 a.m. The meeting is open to the public.
Walker will provide an update on the state of education in Irvine as well as plans for the future, such as how technology will be leveraged as tools for educators, ensuring a rich learning environment for sustainable college- and career-ready students, and how the passage of Measure E, a school facilities improvement measure passed by Irvine voters in June 2016, has helped to modernize the District's aging schools.
Walker leads IUSD, which has nationally-recognized schools; student performance well-above state and national comparisons; and comprehensive programs in academics, the arts, and athletics. Established in 1972, IUSD educates a diverse population of more than 35,000 K-12 students in 24 elementary schools, one early childhood learning center, four K-8 schools, six middle schools, five comprehensive high schools, and one continuation high school.
Walker has served IUSD since 1997, and for the past eight years in his current role. He holds two master’s degrees, one in educational administration and supervision from Pepperdine University and another in education technology leadership from the University of California, Irvine. He earned a bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of California, Santa Barbara.
