ABOUT THE DISTRICT
The Fall River Joint Unified School District serves over 1200 students which come from a large geographic area, covering over 1300 square miles. The district features 8 schools, with the majority attending one of our four comprehensive schools: Burney Elementary, Burney Jr-Sr High School, Fall River Elementary, or Fall River Jr-Sr High School. Most of our students are transported to school by bus. The local economy used to revolve around the lumber industry; however, today there are fewer families tied to this. Major employers in the area stem around two remaining lumber mills which also have numerous indirect employees, a local hospital and additional care centers, PG & E, a major construction company, and our school district. Recent data shows our district has 60% of our students which qualify for the free or reduced lunch program, and our Unduplicated count is also 61%. Our district's student ethnicity is white (59%), Hispanic (27%), and American Indian (9%). Major subgroups include English Learners (9%) and students with disabilities (17%). The district has a Special Education program which serves students with severe physical, academic, behavioral, and emotional needs. There are also alternative education schools at each end of the district. Again this year, students in grades 7-12 are issued a ChromeBook which has allowed our district to enter the "one to one" age of technology. ChromeBooks are also used regularly in our elementary sites. Page 2 of 95 Our students are provided a solid education, leading to numerous success stories. Our district's ultimate goal of having each student graduate "College and Career Ready," is being met, while our second primary goal of having our EL student population make significant growth continues.
As California’s Premier Executive Search and Leadership Development Firm, Leadership Associates has assisted school boards in their selection of superintendents in more than 385 California school districts and organizations since 1996.
The educational agencies we have served range from school districts of all sizes to statewide educational and non-profit organizations. Boards of Education select our firm primarily because of our track record of success, our experience & skill, our network, and our integrity. Because we work for the Board, the search process is also an opportunity for the Board to solidify their own teamwork and set the direction for the future of their district. The process we use, therefore, produces consistently positive outcomes for the Board, staff and community.
In addition to Executive Search Services, Leadership Associates provides Executive Leadership Development Services, which includes professional superintendent support and advisement, quarterly facilitated regional group sessions, access to professional resources, supplemental services, and an annual two-day summer institute with a focus on research and best practices.
