The Hawai‘i State Department of Education (DOE) has confirmed Steven Schatz as the new deputy superintendent for the DOE.

Schatz brings two decades of educational experience to the public school leadership position.  He has worked as a teacher, vice principal, and principal in various schools, and most recently served as the assistant superintendent for the Office of Strategy, Innovation and Performance (OSIP), managing various tasks. He is also the father of two public school children.

“I’m passionate about instruction, and focused on supporting our leaders to provide equity of opportunity for all students within our system,” Schatz said. “I want to thank the Superintendent and the Board for their trust and look forward to working with our principals and teachers in achieving student success.”

Schatz is filling the vacancy left by Ronn Nozoe, who moved to Washington, D.C. to work for the U.S. Department of Education.
