John Bash was hired in March to be the new Superintendent of Tumwater School District beginning July 1. John comes to us from North Thurston Public Schools, where he held the position of Deputy Superintendent for the past five years. He has been transitioning to the District by reaching out and making connections with our schools and the community. John is committed to continuous improvement of systems and programs to effectively address the academic and social/emotional needs of all Tumwater students. There will be more information about his transition and plans in the next Open Line print publication, which will arrive in homes around the District in mid-August. We welcome John to the Tumwater community!
