Sloan Presidio Named FCPS Assistant Superintendent for Instructional Services
Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) Superintendent Jack D. Dale has named Sloan Presidio, who currently serves as director of educational programs for the Tigard-Tualatin School District in Tigard, Ore., assistant superintendent for instructional services, effective July 1. Presidio will replace Peter Noonan, who has been named superintendent of City of Fairfax Schools.
“Sloan Presidio has a broad background of experience in administration,” said Dale. “He has been responsible for implementing new educational strategies—including continuous improvement for secondary students—while instituting cost-savings for the school district. We are looking forward to having him share his expertise with FCPS.
In his current position, Presidio oversees the educational program, day-to-day operations, fiscal resources, and community relations of the district’s secondary education programs along with federal programs, athletics, charter schools, and alternative programs for the 12,500 student district.
Prior to his current position, Presidio served as principal of Hillsboro High School in Hillsboro, Ore., a school of 1,500 students with a diverse population, where he developed a multi-tiered response to intervention programs in literacy and math that raised state assessment scores significantly in three subjects; developed a method to target students in need of academic intervention; and designed a dropout prevention program.
Presidio began his career in education as a classroom teacher in California and also taught in Alaska before becoming technology coordinator for a Eugene, Ore., high school. He served as assistant principal of curriculum and instruction at that school before being named principal of the Eugene (Ore.) Alternative Education Program. Presidio has also worked as legislative counsel to the Oregon State Legislature and as an attorney with Troutman Sanders, LLP in Washington, D.C.
At the state level, Presidio served as a member of the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Waiver Committee for the Oregon Department of Education. He also served on the department’s assessment of essential skills committee and reading assessment standard setting committee.
Presidio earned his bachelor of arts from the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA), and his master’s in educational administration and policy from the University of Oregon. In 2005, he received the Juris Doctor degree from the University of Oregon School of Law, and completed the requirements for the doctorate of education in educational policy and leadership at the University of Oregon in 2010.
