Message from the Superintendent

Welcome and thank you for visiting the Pleasant Hill R-III website. I am excited about the opportunity to serve the school district and community in the role of Superintendent of the Pleasant Hill R-III School District.  I would like to thank the Board of Education for this opportunity and Dr. Townsend for his mentoring during this past transition year. This will be my 19th year in public education with 15 of those years working in administration at the building and district level.  This past year has been beneficial in getting to observe our processes and getting to know our teachers and administration along with our community.

The Pleasant Hill R-III School District has started the process of facility improvements, and thanks to the overwhelming support of our community, you will begin seeing some of the 13 million in improvements started this summer.  Watch our Facebook page for pictures as things progress over the coming months.   Every Student Every Day is our new Mission statement which relates to our overall purpose as an organization. Also, we will be looking for community input in the coming months as we revamp our Comprehensive School Improvement Plan, and will seek feedback to create this important document that will assist in directing our work for the coming years.

Go Roosters! Go Chicks! Go Pleasant Hill!


Steven Meyers, Ed.D.
