Superintendent Dr. Randy Trani's Bio:
Dr. Randy Trani, (1967-present), was born in Denver, Colorado, but grew up in Cordova, Alaska. Randy’s personal experiences with poverty, childhood homelessness, and the power of education to change a life motivated him to enter the field of K-12 education. After teaching all grades K-12 for eight years in small school districts in Alaska in the 1990’s he taught science courses in large suburban and urban schools in Oregon. In 2004 he became the principal of Corbett Schools in Corbett Oregon where he has also served as Superintendent since 2009. While at Corbett he has led Corbett Middle School to be named the only School To Watch in Oregon, and Corbett High School has been recognized as one of the top public high schools in the Country by Newsweek, The Washington Post, and US NEWS and World Reports. Dr. Trani has been named both the Oregon Middle Level Association's Principal of the Year, as well as the Oregon High School Principal of the year. In addition to his day job he enjoys traveling the country actively promoting the Corbett Model. Dr. Trani is excited to be returning to Alaska as the superintendent of the Matanuska-Susitna Borough School District and give back to the state that gave him a free education through his bachelor's degree.
