Columbia Community Unit School District #4


The Columbia CUSD 4 Board of Education is conducting a search for a new superintendent. The selection of a new superintendent is probably the most important decision a board of education has to make; therefore, the Board has hired the Illinois Association of School Boards (IASB) to assist in this process.

The Board of Education is seeking everyone’s input in the search process. The Board requests that all community members complete an online survey provided by the IASB. The results will be tallied and used by the Board and Screening Team to develop a brochure to advertise the position.

The survey can be accessed at:

The survey deadline is: September 16, 2019 at 11:45 p.m.

Thank you for taking the time to complete the survey.

Welcome To Columbia Schools!

Welcome to Columbia Unit School District #4 where education is second to none! CUSD#4 is located just minutes away from St. Louis and serves approximately 2100 students ranging from preschool through twelfth grade. The district operates four school facilities: Eagleview Elementary (Preschool through Grade 1), Parkview School (Grades 2-4), Columbia Middle School (Grades 5-8), and Columbia High School (Grades 9-12.) The community of Columbia strives on high expectations and a rich tradition of excellence and “hometown” pride.

The school year is filled with high expectations for not only academic excellence, but also for maintaining high standards of character. As your superintendent, I can assure you that I will lead the district toward reaching optimal levels of performance. With parents, students, and teachers working together as a team, student success will soar.

It is our hope that this website provides a snapshot of the great things happening in our school district – from providing general information to celebrating our student and school accomplishments. The community of Columbia truly “bleeds blue” and has always fully supported the school district in its pursuit for excellence and continual improvement.

Best wishes to a great school year!
