Since 2003, Glenn Johnson has served as the superintendent of schools for the Cashmere School District. During his tenure, he has worked hard to build and sustain a close working relationship between the schools and the community in order to realize the district’s mission of “ensuring a quality education for all students.” He subscribes to the belief that the only way to reach excellence is through partnerships and collaboration. Under Glenn’s leadership, the school district has launched “Cashmere Cares” which primary purpose is to expand and enhance the partnership between the school district and the community in an effort to broaden the “safety net” for kids!
Glenn attended Central Washington University where he earned both a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Education and Master of Arts in Educational Administration. He later earned his superintendent credentials through Washington State University. In 2004, Glenn and his wife, Danielle, and their four children returned to Cashmere when he accepted the position of school superintendent. This was a homecoming for Glenn as he was raised and attended schools in Cashmere. Education runs in the Johnson family as his father, Dick Johnson, served as the Cashmere and Wenatchee Superintendent for a combined twenty-four years and his brother, Mark, has served as the Nooksack Valley Superintendent for the past twenty years.
