Dearborn Superintendent Glenn Maleyko continues his role as a state leader on education issues after recently being named President-Elect of the Michigan Association of Superintendents and School Administrators (MASA).
The appointment came during MASA’s Winter 2022 conference. MASA provides “just-in-time” technical, personal and legal services to its members, in addition to government relations services, print and digital publications, and professional development opportunities targeted especially for Michigan’s top-level school leaders. MASA serves public school leaders in nearly 600 public school districts and intermediate school districts across the state, impacting more than 1.5 million students.
Dr. Maleyko also currently serves as President of the Middle Cities Education Association and is a board member for the Metropolitan Bureau and the Dearborn Education Foundation. All of the positions are volunteer and help provide both guidance for those organizations and a stronger voice in issues affecting education in Michigan. Having direct access to education policymakers and other educational leaders allows the district to directly communicate the needs and accomplishments of the Dearborn Public Schools.
Dr. Maleyko has worked at Dearborn Public Schools since he began as a substitute teacher in the district in 1995. Working up through the ranks, he was named Superintendent in 2015.
With more than 20,000 students, Dearborn Public Schools is the third largest school district in the state. The district has 2,800 employees and a combined budget of $333 million. The district has a 95 percent high school graduation rate and has seen five schools named National Blue Ribbon Schools in the last five years.
