On January 1, 2018, Scott Yarbrough, began his new career as the Executive Director of ACSTO. For the last two years, Scott has been serving part-time as the Executive Director of School Choice Arizona. The ACSTO Board of Directors selected Scott to assume the reins of Executive Director of ACSTO as well as continuing as Executive Director of School Choice Arizona.
Scott recently retired from a distinguished 20-year career with the Chandler Police Department. He served in many capacities as an officer and promoted through the ranks, retiring as a Lieutenant and Director of Criminal Investigations.
Scott's passion and heart for Christian Education is deeply rooted. He graduated from Grace Community Christian School and is an alumni of Valley Christian High School. He has served on his church board and two different Christian school boards over the span of 10 years. He was also a founding member of a Christian Junior High.
He is married to Shawna, who is also a VCHS alumni and former Christian School teacher and coach. They have two sons, who attend Christian schools in the East Valley. Needless to say, Scott is an effective leader well-versed in the value of Christian Education!
