PAC-East District Superintendent Bio

Dr. Judith Allen - PAC-East District Superintendent

Dr. Judith “Judy” Allen was selected to be the Superintendent of Schools for the DoDEA Korea District and assumed her duties on September 15, 2014. Dr. Allen is a career educator with extensive teaching and administrative experience.  She joined DoDEA more than 30 years ago as a classroom teacher in Europe and went on to hold a number of positions of progressive responsibility before being selected as the assistant superintendent in 2006 while in the Isles District. She transferred to the Korea District in 2011.

Dr. Allen earned her bachelor’s degree in elementary education from the University of Nevada – Las Vegas and a master’s in public administration from Troy State University, European Division. She received her doctorate in educational leadership from the University of Nevada – Reno.

With a portfolio of 11 schools and more than 4,000 students, the DoDEA Pacific West District’s approximately 700 professional educators and support personnel are responsible for delivering high-quality pre-K through 12th grade educational programs to military communities across the Korean peninsula. Dr. Allen inherited a rapidly-changing school district already working with military planners to relocate and consolidate several schools as part of a strategic multi-year re- stationing of U.S. military personnel south of Seoul.

Dr. Allen is very familiar with the unique challenges and opportunities associated with military life. She was married to an Air Force veteran, and spent more than two decades transitioning with her family between military installations in Europe, the Pacific, and the U.S. She is the mother of three children, Laura, Ted, Jr. and Marc and five grandchildren. Her son, Marc is retired from the U.S. Air Force.
