Meet Interim Superintendent Lisa Allen
Lisa Allen enters her 28th year of service to the students and families of Sac City Unified. She is a caring and compassionate educator whose leadership is guided by an unwavering commitment to improving student achievement and outcomes. Lisa cares deeply about creating safe, warm and welcoming learning environments for every student, teacher and staff member.
Lisa is a proud Hoosier and graduate of Indiana University. Not surprisingly, it was a college professor who saw a spark in Lisa and encouraged her to pursue a career in education. Feeling seen and inspired, she went on to earn a bachelor’s degree in Multiple Subject Elementary Education with a minor in Mathematics. Lisa has since received a master’s in education and an administrative credential from Sacramento State University.
During her time with Sac City, Lisa has held positions at every level – climbing through the ranks as a resource teacher supporting Title I students – all the way to Deputy Superintendent, overseeing every major department within the school district. Along the way, she has built strong personal and professional relationships with staff and demonstrated a love for Sac City and a passion for equity in education.
In her personal life, Lisa loves to travel, write and create children’s stories, read, sing, meet new people and experience other cultures. She and her husband have been married for 38 years. They have three sons and three incredible grandchildren.
Lisa Allen was named Acting Superintendent beginning July 1, 2023 following a Special Meeting of the Board of Education on June 28, 2023, and then officially appointed as Interim Superintendent at the July 7, 2023 Special Meeting.
