RE: Superintendent Search

The Board of Education of the Mt. Diablo Unified School District is conducting a search for the next district superintendent. Community input about the desired characteristics to be used in recruiting and selecting this person is desired.

Leadership Associates Executive Search Advisors, Jim Brown and Rene Town, were selected by the Board to conduct the recruitment and comprehensive search process in the selection of the district’s next leader. They will be in our district on September 1 and 2, 2009 to solicit input that will be used to develop the recruitment criteria.

The time set for the consultants to meet with you (or your group) is on September 1, 2009, from 9:00 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. at the Willow Creek Center, 1026 Mohr Lane, Concord 94518. Verification of your attendance would be appreciated. Please contact Rosemarie Scrosati at (925) 682-8000, Ext. 4007.

The consultants will be asking two primary questions: What are the desirable qualities, characteristics, background and experiences (professional and personal) for the next superintendent of the Mt. Diablo Unified School District? What do you see as the strengths of the district and the major challenges facing the district in the years ahead?

If you are unable to meet during the scheduled appointment time, you may attend a community open forum (no appointment necessary) which will be held on September 1 and 2, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., at the same location. If none of the options to meet personally with our advisors matches your schedule, input may also be offered by fax or phone to (949) 461-9119 or email to

We value and appreciate your input in this recruitment process.
