About Superintendent Hauser

Frank Hauser serves as Superintendent of the Sitka School District. Superintendent Hauser is dedicated to supporting students, families, staff, and the community. He believes in collaborative leadership, open communication, and a student-centered approach. From his days teaching Adaptive Aquatics as a high school lifeguard in Palmer and throughout his career, Mr. Hauser has had one principle that guides all his decisions as an educator: What’s best for kids?

Mr. Hauser came to his chosen profession not because school was always easy for him, but because it wasn’t. He has devoted his career to making sure that each and every student has the support they need, access to challenging curriculum, and opportunities for success. In his 24 years in public education in Alaska, Mr. Hauser has worked in nearly every type of school, including elementary, middle, and high schools, and a K-12 optional school. Mr. Hauser served as a music teacher, Director of Fine Arts, Assistant Principal, and Principal of Robert Service High School in the Anchorage School District before becoming Superintendent of the Sitka School District. He is honored to have been selected as Alaska Principal of the Year and, by colleagues statewide, as president-elect of the Alaska Association of Secondary School Principals. As Superintendent, Mr. Hauser works in close partnership with superintendents across Alaska and serves on the board of the Southeast Regional Resource Center (SERRC). Superintendent Hauser is a long-time advocate for Alaska’s public schools and a proud champion of Alaska’s students. He is a graduate of the Mat-Su School District and the University of Alaska system.
