Kym LeBlanc-EsparzaDr. Kym LeBlanc-Esparza will be joining Jeffco Public Schools as deputy superintendent in February, 2022. Kym brings over 30 years of experience in K-12 education. Most recently, she served as the superintendent of the Archuleta School District in southwestern Colorado. In addition to her role as superintendent, Kym has experience as an executive director of K-12, principal, content specialist and staff developer, and teacher. She competed for the deputy position in a field of more than 50 candidates and completed interviews with a series of representative stakeholder groups who interviewed each of our incredibly talented finalists.

What stood out throughout the interview process was Kym’s innovative and collaborative style. She understands large school systems and believes in collective responsibility for the success of every student. She also has the unique experience of being one of two superintendents statewide to serve on the Colorado Commissioner of Education’s stakeholder task force on COVID response, learning loss, equity, and teacher effectiveness.

Deputy superintendent is a critical role for our district. Kym will lead our academic strategy, including a district vision for teaching and learning, and champion the critical work of identifying and coordinating differentiated supports for our schools. We believe that Jeffco Public Schools will benefit greatly from Kym’s leadership and bold vision for 21st century education informed by a career in education that began in the classroom at Title I and Blue Ribbon schools.

Education is a “family business” in Kym’s household. Two of her daughters who live in the metro area are teachers; one is a preschool teacher here in Jeffco. In addition to welcoming Kym to our district, we have the pleasure of welcoming her son who will be attending one of our high schools.
