Rick Schmitt became Superintendent of the San Ramon Valley Unified School District in July 2016.  He arrived at SRVUSD after three successful years as Superintendent of the top-performing San Dieguito Union High School District, which covers multiple cities in north-coastal San Diego County. 


Mr. Schmitt joined SRVUSD with a proven track record that reflects his dedication to educational excellence and visionary leadership. He has a passion for creating an educational environment where each student and staff member can achieve their greatest potential. He is committed to working with staff, parents and the community to build upon the excellence that has made the San Ramon Valley Unified School District one of the best school districts in California.


Mr. Schmitt began his career teaching History, Economics, Government, AP Economics, AP Government and AP U.S. History at a variety of Bay Area schools.  Upon earning his master’s degree and administrative credential from St. Mary’s College, he became a Vice Principal at Granada High School in Livermore, and was subsequently appointed Principal at East Avenue Middle School in Livermore.


Wanting to be closer to his aging parents, in 1999, he moved to San Diego to become the Principal of Coronado High School.  In 2003, he joined the San Dieguito Union High School District as Principal of Torrey Pines High School.  He served as Associate Superintendent of Educational Services for six years, providing district-wide leadership in curriculum, instruction, and assessment for the highest performing district in San Diego County. He also supervised Pupil Services, Athletics, Special Education and Technology. In 2012, Mr. Schmitt was promoted to Deputy Superintendent, when his responsibilities expanded to include district budget, general obligation bond planning and certificated and classified staffing.  He became Superintendent in 2013.
