Dr. David Schuler, Superintendent
Schuler is in his 13th year leading District 214—the second-largest high school system in Illinois. Recognized as a Blue Ribbon High School District by the U.S. Department of Education, his school system serves approximately 300,000 residents.
Under Schuler’s leadership, achievement levels in District 214 have soared amid changing demographics: the Class of 2014 ACT composite score maintained a record high of 23.5, well above the state and national average, and the number of students taking Advanced Placement tests has more than doubled.
Schuler began his career as a Social Studies teacher in Wisconsin. He also served as a student activities and athletics director and principal before becoming a school superintendent. He was superintendent in Marshall (WI) and Stevens Points (WI) before becoming head of District 214 in 2005. He attained his Bachelor’s Degree from Carroll University, and his Master’s in Educational Administration and Doctorate in Educational Leadership and Policy Studies from the University of Wisconsin.
