The Woodland Public Schools board of directors selected Asha Riley as its new superintendent, according to a Tuesday news release from the district.

Riley, who works as Woodland’s assistant superintendent, will take the helm effective July 1.

“Asha is the right leader at the right time,” Board President Jeff Wray said in the news release. “Her deep understanding of the district’s financial landscape, coupled with her commitment to academic excellence and broader community engagement, positions her as the ideal candidate to steer Woodland Public Schools towards a sustainable and prosperous future.”

Riley holds a degree in early learning education from Concordia University, a master’s degree in education from City University and a master’s in educational leadership from Washington State University. She previously worked as a teacher in elementary schools in Evergreen and Woodland school districts, and as a professional development administrator in Evergreen.

Last week, Riley was also listed as one of three finalists for the Ridgefield School District superintendency.
