Dr. Steve Chestnut

Dr. Steve Chestnut is the Superintendent of the Maricopa Unified School District, where he was appointed in 2012. During his tenure, the district has increased its letter grade from “C” to “B”, implemented a unique academic focus at each school, and last November the community approved a ten percent override proposal. He was the 2010 Washington State Superintendent of the Year. 



To help protect your child, Arizona state law requires all students to be completely immunized before attending school. Arrangements for immunizations can be made through your family physician or with the county health department. The law allows for exemptions. However, the County Health Department may request that we exclude children who have not been immunized from school in the event of an epidemic. Special forms, available in the health office, must be completed for an exception to the immunization requirement.

Please visit our Health Services Department for up-to-date information regarding immunizations.
