Mt. Diablo Unified Names Next Superintendent

Vallejo City Unified School District Superintendent Dr. Adam Clark has been selected as the next superintendent for the Mt. Diablo Unified School District. He will replace Dr. Robert Martinez, whose contract was terminated on May 28. Martinez had only been on the job for nine months.

MDUSD Board of Education President Brian Lawrence said the following about the Board’s choice: 

The Board was thoroughly impressed by Dr. Clark’s dedication to student achievement, building positive relationships throughout the community, fiscal discipline, and academic excellence. Dr. Clark embraces working with a diverse student population like the one we have in MDUSD. He is committed to helping every student succeed and making every employee feel valued. With over 20 years in education, Dr. Clark began his career as an elementary teacher in the West Contra Costa Unified School District. Becoming an administrator in Contra Costa County, he served as a middle school vice principal, elementary school principal, middle school principal, and high school principal. Once he transitioned into district office roles, he served as the Assistant Superintendent of Administrative Student Services in the Liberty Union High School District and as the Associate Superintendent of Educational Services in the Antioch Unified School District.

Dr. Clark’s appointment will be considered at the July 13th MDUSD Board meeting. He would be starting at MDUSD soon after that, once he wraps up his duties in Vallejo. We are very eager to have him get started. Please join me in welcoming Dr. Adam Clark to the MDUSD community!

MDUSD operates dozens of schools, including 29 elementary schools, 9 middle schools, and 5 high schools. The district also offers 7 alternative school programs and an education program for adults.
