Windsor Unified names new superintendent

05/07/2014 - The Windsor Unified School District Board of Trustees announced the selection of Steven Jorgensen as its new superintendent, effective July 1. Mr. Jorgensen will provide administrative and instructional leadership to this K-12 district of more than 5,600 students.

Mr. Jorgensen brings over 30 years of experience in education to this position. He began his career as a high school teacher, later becoming a principal. For the past two years, he has served as superintendent for the Cloverdale Unified School District and previously held the same position in the Willits Unified School District. His past administrative experience also includes five years as assistant superintendent for business services at the West Sonoma County Unified School District.

“In addition to having secured the complete confidence of the board, Mr. Jorgensen enjoyed the overwhelming support of our superintendent search committee and was deemed a superb candidate to meet our needs and high expectations,” said Board of Trustees President Sandy Dobbins. “We have every confidence that he will prove to be a great leader for this district, employing extensive school finance knowledge obtained through Chief Business Office (CBO) training, as well as bringing his experience and multitude of successes as superintendent in previous districts.”

The Sonoma County Office of Education facilitated the superintendent search process for the Windsor district. The position was advertised statewide and drew a large pool of applicants. The Board of Trustees selected Mr. Jorgensen following a review of applicant qualifications and two sets of interviews.
