Superintendent's Message

Jeffrey M. Stanton, Superintendent

Jeffrey Stanton


August/September 2023


Welcome to the 2023/2024 school year!  We are so excited to begin the new school year, and we thank the students, staff, parents, and entire Buckeye School District community in advance for all everyone will do to work together to make this school year the best possible.  

I am so excited to be the new Superintendent.  The welcome I have received in the short time I have been here has been amazing, and I am so excited about helping lead and guide the district into the future.  The future for Buckeye is very bright, and I thank you for allowing me the honor and privilege of being your Superintendent.

As I continue to get acclimated to the district and communities, my goal remains to meet as many people as I can and to ask three common questions.  1:  What do you love about Buckeye?  2:  What would you like to see improved?  3:  What do you expect from me as the Superintendent?  If you feel obliged, send me an email at with these questions answered.  I also ask you to include your name and email address so I can respond.  My goal is to compile this information from as many people as I can and use the responses to help guide the vision and future steps for the district.  Responses can of course be anonymous if preferred.

Below you will see a brief list of important dates, times, and events that take place in the beginning of the school year.  Please reach out if we can answer any questions about the events.

Let’s have a great start to the 23/24 school year.

Go Bucks!
