“I am pleased to welcome Steve Miller back to Pasadena Unified as a key member of the executive leadership team as we align staffing to enrollment and budget parameters,” said Superintendent McDonald. “Along with his knowledge of our district, Dr. Miller brings extensive senior management experience in implementing human resources process improvements and a profound commitment to supporting systemic change that increases equity and access to high quality education for all students.”

As Chief of Human Resources, Dr. Miller will be responsible for leading the District’s Human Resources division and its activities in recruitment, selection, placement and assignment, classification and compensation, employee performance management and accountability, salary administration, and employee relations.

“I am excited to return to serve the students, employees, and families of Pasadena Unified,” said Dr. Miller. “Human Resources is critical to ensuring that PUSD recruits, retains, and supports people with skills and capabilities to deliver equitable access to high quality education for all students. I look forward to being part of the PUSD team.”

Dr. Miller currently serves as Deputy Superintendent of Human Resources in the Lawndale Unified School District, where he is responsible for the Human Resources, the Before and After School Program, and the Student Support Services departments. As a member of the executive cabinet, he was involved in the development and implementation of accountability systems, strategic planning, and led the development of new evaluation tools for leadership, certificated, and classified employees in collaboration with union representatives and district administrators.
