-A +A

After 17 years as superintendent of the Rocklin Unified School District, Kevin Brown has announced that he will retire at the end of the current school year.

The board of trustees recently hired The Cosca Group to serve as consultants to assist the board in the search process and selection of a new superintendent. The process is expected to result in an announcement of the new superintendent in early May.

The Cosca Group has provided three partners to serve as the board’s consultants in the search and selection process. Dr. Donald Remley, Dr. General Davie and Dr. Robert Barbot are former school superintendents, having serving in school districts throughout Northern California.

The consultants will receive input from students, parents, employees, interested citizens and elected officials concerning the strengths of the district, the needs and critical issues facing the district and the characteristics desired in the next superintendent. The consultants will assist each group in prioritizing the strengths, critical issues and characteristics.

A series of meetings and open forums have been scheduled to enable the community, staff, parents and students to provide their input. The consultant will share all comments received from the community, staff, students and parents with the board of trustees on Feb. 20. The comments and information received from the series of meetings and forums will serve a critical role in helping the board select a superintendent who is a “perfect fit” for the families and students of the Rocklin Unified School District.

The open forum will be held from 7-8 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 13, at Spring View Middle School (5040 5th St.) and Granite Oaks Middle School (2600 Wyckford Blvd.). The complete schedule is available at All employees of the school district and the Rocklin community are encouraged to participate in one or more of the meetings.
