San Joaquin County Superintendent to Retire

San Joaquin County Superintendent of Schools James A. Mousalimas has spent three and a half decades in public education. He’s hanging his hat up on the 30th of June.

The San Joaquin County Board of Education accepted Mousalimas’ retirement last Wednesday. Troy A. Brown, associate superintendent of student programs and services for the San Joaquin County Office of Education, has been chosen to succeed him.

“The decision to retire after 35 years in education was not an easy one. However, it was made with much consideration and the confidence in knowing that the SJCOE will be in good hands under Troy Brown’s leadership,” said Mousalimas. “He is a service-centered, forward-thinking leader who is thoughtful and deliberate in his decision-making – essential qualities for the next superintendent who will lead our organization forward.”

Mousalimas has held the superintendent post since 2014. He previously worked for the Tracy Unified School District.

Brown has been with SJCOE for two years. He previously worked as the director of Student Services and Curriculum for Tracy Unified. He has also been a teacher, coach, assistant principal, and principal.
