The Grandview C-4 School District’s Board of Education announced today that Dr. Ralph Teran will retire from his position as Superintendent at the end of the 2015-2016 school year. Dr. Teran has served as Superintendent of the district since 2006. His dedicated leadership and strong commitment to student learning is best evidenced by significant improvement in student achievement. As reflected in the district’s Annual Performance Report, the district scored in the Accredited with Distinction status for the past two years.
Additional accomplishments include putting MacBooks in the hands of every high school student in the
district, establishing Grandview High School as an A+ designated school, keeping the focus on
instruction during difficult budgetary times, strengthening community and business partnerships, and
substantial facilities improvements through the passage of three bond issues.
“I am grateful to the Board of Education for being an outstanding collaborative team of seven caring,
smart and dedicated leaders. Likewise, Grandview C-4 staff members have impacted my life for the
better in countless ways. I am a better person and educator because of the great work they do,” said
The Board recognizes and appreciates the Superintendent for all he has done for our students and
schools, and wishes him great enjoyment in his future endeavors. The Board voted to accept Dr.
Teran’s retirement during its meeting on August 27, 2015. Because of the timing of his announcement,
the Board is in the best possible position to conduct a diligent search to find the right candidate to
continue the district’s leadership. The Board has already met to discuss its search for the future
leadership of the district and will continue to update the community as well as provide opportunity for
input during the search process.
