Yolanda (Lana) Conaway has been in education for over 20 years and has held various leadership roles at the district and site level. She joined Palo Alto Unified School District in 2017 as the Assistant Superintendent of Strategic Initiatives and Operations overseeing student services; special education; research, evaluation and assessment; and the Advanced Authentic Research (AAR) program for high school students. In 2019, her role shifted to Assistant Superintendent of Equity and Student Affairs to respond to the growing need to focus on the achievement gap in PAUSD. She has served as an executive director of student services, site administrator, and supervisor of counseling and support services.

Prior to working as an administrator, Conaway was a high school teacher, an instructional specialist and minority achievement leader in the Williamsburg-James City County School District.

She holds a bachelor's degree in psychology/behavioral sciences; master's degrees in cross-categorical special education and K-12 administration, and doctoral candidacy in Educational Policy, Planning, and Leadership from the College of William and Mary.
