Resignation of Tony Roehrick, Cabrillo Unified School District Superintendent
The Cabrillo Unified School District announces the resignation of Dr. Tony Roehrick as
Superintendent, effective June 30, 2015. Dr. Roehrick has served since July 1, 2012. He has
accepted a position to become Superintendent of a district located in Sonoma County.
Dr. Roehrick cited personal reasons for his decision to leave Cabrillo. “I came to this district
with every intention to spend the rest of my career here,” Roehrick stated. “However, after
moving from Sonoma County my first year in the District, it became clear that the adjustment
to leave family and friends was very difficult for my wife. We moved back to our home in
Santa Rosa after that first year. Living in two places and commuting on weekends has been
very difficult for both of us. This is my sole reason for leaving the district.”
The Governing Board will contract with Leadership and Associates to conduct the search for a
new superintendent. This firm assisted in the search process that resulted in the appointment
of Dr. Roehrick. The Board is again committed to conducting a search with input from the
community and district employees.
Dr. Roehrick stated, “I am very appreciative of the Governing Board to have brought me to
Cabrillo. This is an outstanding district and community. Our teachers are among the most
talented and dedicated I have ever worked with. We have excellent principals and assistant
principals in place and our district team is a cohesive group that supports the teaching and
learning that occurs daily in our classrooms. I will miss them all.”
