Office of the Superintendent
Heather Armelino was selected to be the Superintendent of the Enterprise Elementary School District beginning in 2021. An educator with the district since 1998, she considers herself a teacher first and foremost. Previous positions of assistant superintendent, principal, assistant principal, general and special education teacher have prepared her well for leading a high-achieving district through complex times. She is guided by the vision to empower every child, every day, to create a better world, and is committed to giving every student the opportunity to succeed in an inclusive and nurturing environment.
Mrs. Armelino leads with students at the heart of all decisions and as the foundation for creating systems that work toward continuous improvement in academic achievement and social-emotional well-being for each student. She is focused on building strong relationships throughout the community and engaging staff, students, and community members in taking EESD to the next level.
Putting core principles into action toward improving student outcomes include meeting basic needs of students and their families, such as nutrition, safety, and mental well-being. Resources such as preschool, after school programs, counselors, behavior technicians, Art, music, STEM, PE, and social-emotional learning further support these outcomes. Improvement science is applied to instructional practices to ensure that every student progresses toward meeting or exceeding state academic standards and is prepared for a college/career pathway. Mrs. Armelino works to align priorities, goals, and resources that include performance measures to track progress toward narrowing the achievement gap while reaching individualized growth goals.
Heather holds a Master’s of Science in School Leadership. She also serves as the co-chair of the Reach Higher Shasta Literacy Committee, Financial Crisis Management & Assistance Team (FCMAT) board member, California Collaborative for Excellence in Education (CCEE) Advisory Council, Association of California School Administrators (ACSA) administrative coach, and past president of the Shasta County School Administrators Association.
