Dr. Paul Ziegler, Executive Director, EducationPlus

Dr. Ziegler (retired) Superintendent of Northwest R-I School District, received his Bachelors and Masters Degrees from Northeast Missouri State University (Truman State), his Specialist Degree from Lindenwood University, and his Juris Doctorate from Saint Louis University.

Beginning in 2000, Dr. Ziegler served the Northwest R-I School District as the Director of Administrative Services, and later, the Assistant Superintendent of Funds and Facilities.  He was named Superintendent in 2007.  Dr. Ziegler had previously served as an assistant principal in both the Northwest R-I and Francis Howell School Districts.

With Dr. Ziegler’s leadership, the Northwest R-I School District passed two significant bond issues in the past seven years.  In both instances, it was through communication and collaboration with members of his staff and community that led to the passage of the referendums.  The bonds led to a more fair and competitive salary structure and the ability to address the district’s technology needs.

Dr. Ziegler participated in Issues in Education with topics ranging from, Real Challenges, Sources of Funding, What Quality Education Costs and Trends.  Please click the videos to hear what he had to say.
