Stella Kemp Named Santa Clara Unified Superintendent

Stella Kemp will soon be leaving her job as Superintendent of the San Bruno Park School District. She is headed to Santa Clara Unified where she’ll replace retiring Superintendent Stanley Rose.

Kemp has worked in the education field for more than 30 years and was appointed to the San Bruno Superintendent’s position in 2017. Before that, she spent 7 years as Superintendent of the Franklin-McKinley School District.

“Dr. Kemp’s demonstrated success as a teacher, site administrator, assistant superintendent for educational services and superintendent uniquely qualifies her for the position of superintendent in Santa Clara Unified,” SCUSD Board President Michele Ryan said in a statement. “In addition, her doctoral dissertation centered on school governance and improving student achievement. The board and I are very excited to welcome Dr. Kemp to the SCUSD family."

Kemp will earn a salary of $275,000 with 2-3% annual raises thereafter. She will also receive $7,500 for moving expenses and could be eligible for bonuses of up to 8%.

Her start date is July 1.
