We are excited to welcome our new Superintendent, Diego Ochoa, who officially joins us on July 1st. Diego brings with him 22 years of experience focused on curriculum, special education, equity, student wellness, and parent engagement. He recently joined our June Board Meeting and shared with us his vision and desire to actively engage with our families with a goal of making investments now which will result in long-term, significant impact to our kids’ education. Having experienced the impact of the 2008 recession and the resulting loss of programs, he is looking forward to strengthening our current curriculum and investing in additional programs to enhance and expand our student offerings.
We look forward to working with Diego as we invest in our kids’ futures.
Please join us in thanking Dr. Joan Rosas for her six years of service as Superintendent of the San Mateo-Foster City School District. Joan has been a strong advocate for our students and was very active in the Education Foundation prior to and during her tenure as Superintendent. While guiding the District through the challenges of distance learning, she partnered with us on our Digital Divide campaign and provided resources to reopen schools safely. She has played an instrumental role in revitalizing the Education Foundation, actively supporting our fundraisers, and championing our efforts to raise additional funding for our schools.
We wish her the best of luck in her retirement and look forward to her continued support of kids in our community.
We are excited about our new 3 year, $5,000,000 initiative focused on bringing community partners as we embark on a larger vision for the Foundation.
