About Dr. Greene
Dr. Trevor Greene is the Superintendent of Schools for the Yakima School District. He began in this role in 2019 and immediately began working with over 300 community members on a new strategic plan for the district. While navigating the intensities of the pandemic, the Yakima School District stayed true to its strategic plan:
Yakima’s littlest learners now have an early learning center;
all students and families have access to a new health and wellness center on North First Street;
elementary schools launched dual language;
more high school students are graduating with the seal of biliteracy on their diploma and have more college credit opportunities;
Dr. Greene and the Yakima School District have proudly expanded student-focused relationships with the Yakama Nation, the business community, and the district’s faith-based partners, amongst others.
Before becoming Yakima’s Superintendent, Dr. Greene served students as a paraeducator, security guard, teacher, assistant principal, principal, and district administrator. In 2013, Dr. Greene was honored as the National Principal of the Year by the National Association of Secondary Principals (NASP). Last year he was nationally recognized as one of the nation’s 25 “Superintendents To Watch.”
Dr. Greene received his Bachelor of Arts degree from Brigham Young University, his Master’s degree from Central Washington University, his Superintendent credential from Washington State University, and his Doctoral degree in Educational Leadership and Policy Studies from the University of Washington. He is fluent in the Spanish language and is an enrolled member of the Muscogee Creek tribe.
Trevor is a proud member of Rotary Club of Yakima, a board member of the Downtown Association of Yakima, service on the regional advisory board for the Washington Chapter of Teach for America, a board member for Children’s Alliance, and he was recently inducted into the Heads and Principals Association.
