Official Appointment Expected on July 13th

July 1, 2020 – Concord, CA – On behalf of the Mount Diablo Unified School District (MDUSD) Governing Board of Education, President Brian Lawrence announces Dr. Adam Clark as the sole finalist for the Superintendent position, signaling the conclusion of the recruitment process. 

Dear MDUSD Community,

     It is with great excitement that I share the news that the MDUSD Board has selected a finalist to become our next Superintendent. Dr. Adam Clark is currently the Superintendent in Vallejo City Unified School District, where he has served with distinction for the past three years.

     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!

Best regards,

Brian Lawrence
President, MDUSD Board of Education
