Superintendent Ochoa message regarding resignation
Posted 1/10/19

Dear Esparto Community,

It is has been the highest professional honor of my career to serve as the Superintendent of the Esparto Unified School District. I have relished the opportunity to work with educators who make a difference in the lives of students in the Esparto Unified School District.


The EUSD Board of Education has accepted my resignation from my position effective at the end of the work day on February 7, 2019. The Board of Education will move to determine how to replace the Superintendent position and will be scheduling meetings in the coming days. Notice of these meetings will all be posted online and at every site.



I thank every teacher in this district for committing themselves to educate every child. I thank every classified member in this district for your their outstanding work. 


I thank the Esparto High School staff for developing programs, increasing school spirit, getting kids ready for college, and supporting all students. I thank the Esparto Middle School staff for transforming that campus in 3 years. Our students are lucky to have such amazing educators serve them. I thank Esparto Elementary School staff for being leaders in curriculum implementation, creating a supportive school culture, and making that campus a magical place to attend school. I thank Madison High School staff for taking the school into the future.


I thank the extraordinary administrators in our district who I am honored to call my colleagues. I thank our district staff for their excellence.


Finally, I would like to thank the Esparto Unified School District Board of Education who have served as my mentors. I will miss you all.


To the students in the Esparto Unified School District: You are special. You are wonderful. You will go far and make a difference. I will never forget you.


Diego Ochoa
