Announcement of Interim Superintendent for Chandler Unified School District


April 7, 2021

To the Chandler Unified School District Staff and Community,

In a special Board meeting on April 7, 2021, we, as members of the Chandler Unified School District Governing Board, unanimously voted to name Mr. Frank Narducci as the District’s Interim Superintendent effective July 1, 2021.  As Interim Superintendent, Mr. Narducci will have full authority to lead the District. 

Mr. Narducci has 38 years of experience in the field of education, beginning as a classroom teacher then moving to leadership positions at the building and district level.  He has been a well-respected and trusted administrator in the Chandler Unified School District for 25 years, serving as Assistant Superintendent on Dr. Camille Casteel’s executive team from 2011 to the present.  He has a wide range of expertise related to curriculum, instruction, business, and program development.  In addition, Mr. Narducci is active in the community serving in leadership roles on several foundations and boards.  In his communication with the Governing Board, Frank expressed his excitement and optimism for the 2021-2022 school year.  He looks forward to working with others to create a positive experience for our outstanding students, supportive families, and dedicated staff.  We are confident Frank’s leadership will result in a smooth transition for the school community.

As we near the end of this school year, it is the time to celebrate the accomplishments and resilience of our students, recognize the dedication of our staff, and thank our supportive community.  It is also time to express gratitude for Dr. Casteel’s 25 years of stellar service as Superintendent as we look forward to the District’s continued success under Mr. Narducci’s strong leadership.
