Office of the Superintendent
Hello Stockton Unified Community,
My name is John Ramirez Jr. and it is my honor to serve you as the Superintendent of Stockton Unified School District.
I began my work experience at six years old in the strawberry fields of Salinas, California. As a child, I was excited and proud to help support my family. During this time, I realized receiving an education was the solution to providing the support that I was so eager to give. It is with this drive and tenacity that I continued my education at both Santa Clara and Harvard Universities. During my leadership career, I was chosen to lead in the community that I grew up in and my aim is to lead with the same dedication in Stockton. I will diligently work to make sure every Stockton Unified School District student is given the same opportunity that I had.
While we are living in unprecedented times, I want to personally assure you that the district is doing everything within its power for a safe return to school. All 56 school sites have undergone safety and sanitation protocols. We are currently working on transportation schedules, meal distribution, developing plans for in-person, live instruction, and continuing with distance-learning for those who choose this option. We do not have a firm opening date yet, but we are working diligently to open as soon as possible. As soon as we have a return to school date, we will communicate this with you via email, our district website, district social media outlets, and by phone.
I look forward to moving our district forward and becoming educational pioneers while we navigate this pandemic. I am humbled to serve you as the Interim Superintendent of Stockton Unified School District.
John Ramirez, Jr.
