David R. Schuler, Ph.D., is the 2018 Illinois and National Superintendent of the Year. Known for his ability to inspire and build leaders, he spearheaded Redefining Ready!, the national movement to redefine what it means for students to be college, career, and life ready. The movement began when Schuler served as the 2015-2016 President of AASA, The School Superintendents Association.

Schuler has served 18 years as a superintendent, 13 in his current role leading Township High School District 214, Illinois’ largest high school district. There he has led the development of an innovative instructional philosophy around personalized learning experiences, focusing on career pathways, early college credit, and industry credentials, which enables students to discover their futures while still in high school. The 44 pathways align with 16 national career clusters and allow for students to gain real-world experience through youth apprenticeships and workplace learning experiences. In addition, District 214 now teaches computer science to all 12,000 students, and its six schools were among only seven in the nation to pilot an iOS app development curriculum, initiatives which were recognized by the White House.
