Superintendent of Schools

Dr. David A. Moyer - Biography

Dr. Moyer begins his second year as the superintendent of Elmhurst Community Unit School District 205.  Moyer has amassed 18 years of administrative experience, including seven as a superintendent.  He has served as an assistant superintendent, principal, assistant principal, and athletic director in seven districts and two states.  On April 21, 2015, he was recognized at the Governor’s Executive Mansion as an Illinois Superintendent of Distinction.

Since coming to Elmhurst, Moyer has facilitated school improvement work around the objectives of balanced assessment and student engagement, guided the Focus205 process designed to solicit community input to assist in the development of a District Operational Plan, helped construct a plan to implement instructional coaching, and worked with the Elmhurst Teacher’s Council to facilitate the Middle School Task Force’s efforts to identify improvement strategies at the 6-8 grade level.

Special Report from Dr. David Moyer

When I interviewed for the D205 superintendent position in the spring of 2015, I advocated for a culture that supports the Moral Imperative of Raising the Bar and Closing the Achievement Gap for All Students. At the same time, I strongly suggested the importance of establishing an operational plan for the District. At this point in the year, it seems appropriate to review these concepts and celebrate the many successes we have experienced to date.

The Focus 205 process, which included four Community Engagement Sessions this past fall, will provide a foundation for a longer term master plan. However, in the interim, I felt it was paramount that the District develop a framework for its efforts to improve student achievement. This framework will provide a lens to focus resource allocation decisions in the District until a more comprehensive plan is developed.

The Board agreed and approved such a plan in August of 2015 that includes a Community Compact. This document outlines the District’s commitment to provide the highest quality educational experiences for students consistent with the current research. The words were carefully selected to acknowledge and encourage the importance of all parties working together collaboratively to maintain and strengthen the interrelated goals of a high quality public school system and a healthy community.
