Geoff Yantz (MS ’96, EdD ‘01) was named the new superintendent of South Pasadena Unified School District in March 2014. The move followed more than 20 years of service to the El Segundo Unified School District where Yantz filled the roles of teacher, mentor teacher, principal, assistant superintendent, deputy superintendent, and most recently superintendent. Among his many achievements, he is credited with redesigning the El Segundo’s special education delivery model, implementing a one-to-one iPad initiative at the high school, and designing progressive staff development programs. In an article in South Pasadena Now, Yantz is quoted as saying, “South Pasadena clearly places education and students as its priority… The strategic plan and goals indicate a desire to be progressive in curriculum development and I look forward to lending my expertise to that effort.”
