ABOUT DR. NEIL GLASS
CapeGirardeau Public Schools
Superintendent Dr. Neil Glass was selected by the Cape Girardeau Public Schools Board of Education to lead the district starting July 1, 2017. After working for the past nine years as an Assistant Superintendent, he has a genuine understanding of the challenges and opportunities that await. Dr. Glass is committed to providing the best educational experience for all students.
Dr. Glass began his career in the Jackson R-II school district in 1996. After serving seven years in the Physical Education department, he began his administrative career in 2003 at Chaffee Public Schools as the High School and Junior High School principal. During that same time Dr. Glass earned his Specialist in Educational leadership from Saint Louis University.
In 2008, Dr. Glass was hired by the Cape Girardeau Public Schools to lead the District through an extensive Master Facility Plan process and recommend improvements to district facilities to the Board of Education. The District moved forward in 2010 with a 40 million dollar bond referendum which included classroom expansions, infrastructure improvements, an athletic stadium, and a performing arts hall. Again in 2015 under Dr. Glass’s leadership another 20 million dollar bond referendum was passed to renovate the junior high school and construct a college center on the career and technology center campus.
Dr. Glass considers it a great privilege to lead and serve Cape Girardeau Public Schools in preparing the next generation of young people with the education and skills necessary to compete in a global society.
He is married to Krista and is a proud parent of Kayden, Lisken, and Bryce.
