On Tuesday, June 14th, the Board of Education for the Conejo Valley Unified School District announced Dr. Shanna Egans as the District’s new Assistant Superintendent, Student Services. Dr. Egans most recently served as the Director, Student Support Services for the Anaheim Union High School District.
