New Interim Superintendent

The Payson Unified School District is very happy to announce that the new Interim Superintendent is Dr. Mark Tregaskes.  Dr. Tregaskes comes to our school district with 23 years of experience as a superintendent and 42 years of experience as an educator. He has received state recognition as an educator and has served on various boards for education and drug abuse.  Dr. Tregaskes is no stranger to Payson. He is connected through family, past and present. He remembers the old Julia Randall school and when Sawmill was a sawmill.

We interviewed very strong, talented candidates so the decision was not easy. We feel that Dr. Tregaskes is the best person to get our district through the school year with minimal disruption and continue to move us forward in a positive, effective way.  We believe that having this highly talented individual best supports our core belief of “putting kids first”.

The Board would like to thank Dr. Stan Rentz for his time here at Payson Unified School District.  We wish him well and best of luck in all he does in the future.
