School Board President Joel Sieren says Scott will bring a unique skill set to the role. “The Board is looking forward to working with Mr. Scott to continue the work of our mission and vision for the Burlington Community School District. Mr. Scott recognizes the success we’ve seen in our schools and is ready to build on what we’ve accomplished,” Sieren said: “The candidate pool was full of quality applicants, eager to be a part of what we’re building. Mr. Scott’s unique skill set and experience is what set him apart. We are confident he is the right choice, and we are excited for our students, staff, and community to meet him.”

Scott brings over 30 years of experience as an educator and administrator, having served as the associate superintendent and chief academic officer in the Davenport CSD, where he was responsible for evaluating and developing principals, staffing schools, overseeing districtwide extracurricular programming, and organizing site visits with curriculum staff. Currently, Scott serves as the director of athletics and activities for Centennial High School in Ankeny.
