Next SRCS Leader

2022-23 Superintendent Search

The San Rafael City Schools Board of Education is in the process of conducting a search to hire the District's next Superintendent to begin July 1, 2023.

This page will be frequently updated - please check back often!

Dear San Rafael City Schools Community,

Last month, Superintendent Jim Hogeboom announced that he will be retiring at the end of this school year. During his four years with SRCS and his decades of service in education, he has made a remarkable difference for thousands of students. We look forward to celebrating Superintendent Hogeboom’s many contributions to SRCS in the months to come!

Hiring a new superintendent is among the Board of Education’s most essential responsibilities. The Board has begun the next steps to find a highly-qualified candidate to serve as SRCS’ next leader, who is expected to be in place by July 1, 2023. Given the importance of this process, the Board has decided to seek proposals for an executive search firm to provide advice and support. At its open meeting on Jan. 9, the Board will hear presentations from interested search firms and consider selecting a firm. After the selection, this Board will work with the firm to identify an extensive timeline that will be shared with the public. 

The Board has emphasized that public input is a key component of the search process, and has plans to begin this work right away. There will be multiple opportunities to gather input and help shape the search for a new superintendent. This will include a survey that will launch next week for our greater SRCS community to share feedback on the characteristics and qualities the Board should seek in a new superintendent. Please watch for the survey and more information next week! 

The website www.srcs.org/next-leader will contain the latest information. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please contact communications@srcs.org.

Sincerely,

Gina Daly and Carolina Martin
Superintendent Search Board Subcommittee

The San Rafael City Schools Board of Education has begun the process to find a highly-qualified candidate to serve as our next leader. Input from the greater SRCS community is a key component of the search. 

You are invited to share your feedback on the characteristics and qualities the Board should seek in a new superintendent - our brief input survey is now available. Please complete the survey by December 23, 2022. 

This survey is one of the ways the Board is gathering input from our community; there will also be a series of community engagement sessions in the new year - please stay tuned for more information. 

In other next steps, the Board is seeking proposals for an executive search firm to lead the search process. At its open meeting on Jan. 9, the Board will hear presentations from interested search firms and consider selecting a firm. After the selection, this Board will work with the firm to identify an extensive timeline that will be shared with the public. Superintendent Jim Hogeboom has announced that he will retire effective June 30, 2023; the next superintendent is expected to be in place by July 1, 2023.
