Tagged in

After serving the San Dieguito Union High School District for 13 years in various positions, Superintendent Rick Schmitt has accepted a superintendent position at the San Ramon Valley Unified School District. 

The RSF Review reports:

"Schmitt served the San Dieguito Union High School District for 13 years, as Principal of Torrey Pines High School for three years, then six years as Associate Superintendent of Educational Services, followed by one year as Deputy Superintendent before becoming Superintendent in 2013.

'Mr. Schmitt has been a tremendous asset to the District and I am sad to see him go,' San Dieguito Union High School District Board of Trustee President Beth Hergesheimer stated, 'I understand this is an amazing opportunity for Mr. Schmitt and his family, and know that he will do the same fabulous work in San Ramon as he did here at San Dieguito. Mr. Schmitt accomplished so much in his 13 years at the San Dieguito Union High School District, including establishing a commitment to high community visibility and partnerships, building strong relationships with staff and parents, and leading the work to continually improve student achievement while caring for the overall well being of each student.'

Hergesheimer will work with her fellow trustees, staff and the community on replacing Schmitt. Schmitt’s last day with the San Dieguito Union High School District will be June 30, 2016."
