The Board of Trustees appointed Deputy Superintendent Jeremy Meyers to the County Superintendent of Schools position at an El Dorado County Board of Education meeting Feb. 5, according to a press release from the El Dorado County Office of Education.

The position will be effective July 1. It will fill the unexpired term left when current County Superintendent of Schools Vicki Barber retires June 30.

The board requested Meyers step forward with the appointment being effective through 2014. Meyers, responding to an inquiry from the board, assured that he had every intention of running for the seat at the primary election, which will be held in June 2014 and if needed, the general election in November 2014.

Meyers has been employed with Office of Education since 2004. In the past nine years, Meyers has also served as associate superintendent for educational services and information technology, executive director for human resources and information technology, and executive director for Charter Community School and Extended Day.

Prior to joining the Office of Education, Meyers was assistant superintendent for the Black Oak Mine Unified School District, where he had also been principal and assistant principal at Golden Sierra High School.

Meyers began his education career as a teacher at Sierra Sands Unified School District at Burroughs High School in Ridgecrest. He was Teacher of the Year there. He’s also taught at the community college level.

Meyers earned a Bachelor’s degree from Sonoma State University and a Master’s in Educational Leadership and Curriculum and Instruction. His Administrative Credential program was completed at St. Mary’s College and he holds a Professional Clear Single Subject Teaching Credential and Administrative Services Credential.

Meyers has also been involved in the local community. He currently serves on the Western Slope Boys & Girls Club and the El Dorado County Community Foundation Boards. He has been accepted into the American Leadership Forum program for 2014.

“Jeremy has demonstrated the ability and skills to continue a path of ongoing improvement for the County Office,” said Gene Rasmussen, president of the board.

“I look forward to maintaining Vicki Barber’s legacy of ensuring that the EDCOE continues to be a service organization to children and families, school districts, and our myriad of community partners,” Meyers said to the board and audience at the Feb. 5 meeting, according to the release.

“Jeremy cares about the kids in our community,” said Superintendent of the El Dorado Union High School District Chris Hoffman. “Jeremy appreciates the core values and culture that has been built in this county and will work to ensure that we continue to provide quality education to all children and youth.”

David Roth, superintendent of the Buckeye Union School District said, “Jeremy understands where we have been, where we are going, and where we should be in the future. He has my total support.”

Kevin Monsma, superintendent of the Pollock Pines and Silver Fork school districts, added, “Jeremy Meyers is one of the few educators who is familiar with all of the unique needs, programs, and interests in our education community, from Lake Tahoe to El Dorado Hills, from the Divide to South County, and everything in between.”

Barber noted that all superintendents endorsed Meyers for the position and showed the board a signed petition from the district superintendents .

“Our most important stakeholders are the employees that make education happen for all of our students. Jeremy enjoys a positive relationship with all employee groups,” she said.

Sean McCartney, director of the Western Slope Boys & Girls Club, and El Dorado County Sheriff John D’Agostini were also present at the meeting to lend their support. D’Agostini added that he has worked with Meyers on many different occasions and looks forward to continuing the efforts between law enforcement and education to ensure the safety of our students.

“Jeremy’s knowledge, experience and commitment to maintain and build the necessary partnerships to ensure the success for El Dorado County schools is a big reason that he has my support,” D’Agostini said.

“I am humbled and overwhelmed by the comments that have been offered and I look forward to continuing our joint efforts of providing high quality education and services,” Meyers said.
