SRCS Welcomes New Assistant Superintendent, Business Services

Doug_Marquand_web.jpgAfter an extensive search process for a key administrator position, San Rafael City Schools (SRCS) is pleased to announce that the Board of Education appointed Doug Marquand as the Assistant Superintendent of Business Services at its meeting on September 12, 2016. The addition completes the SRCS administrative team for the 2016-2017 school year. He will start with the district in mid-October. School Services of California assisted with the statewide search and selection process. 

Mr. Marquand will provide districtwide leadership in collaboration with Superintendent Michael Watenpaugh, Ed.D. to develop and implement district policies and initiatives that advance and prioritize the work of SRCS' strategic plan. He will oversee the district's business services department, which includes payroll, maintenance and operations, transportation, and food and nutritional services, along with all business-related services to SRCS.

"We feel fortunate to not only have found a leader with such great depth of experience in business services and implementing bond programs, but also someone who goes beyond 'number crunching' and is passionate about servicing sites and creating a collaborative climate," said Superintendent Watenpaugh. "Doug is a great fit for San Rafael City Schools and we're thrilled to have him join the team."

Mr. Marquand has been involved in the world of school finance for 20 years, and has been recognized throughout his career for his leadership, comprehensive technical knowledge, collaboration and communication skills, follow-through and dedication to the work and to all stakeholders. A native of Marin County, he most recently was the Assistant Superintendent of Administrative Services with the Placer Union High School District for nine years. Previously, he was with the North Sacramento Elementary School District for 11 years, where he held positions of Chief of Business and Operations and Director of Child Nutrition and Transportation. 

"I have a passion for San Rafael City School's mission and vision, and I look forward to returning to Marin," said Marquand. "I am eager to use my talents and expertise to contribute to the fiscal solvency of the District, as well as to maximize the community's generous support of Measures A and B in providing safe and healthy 21st century learning environments so all our children have opportunities to be successful in college, career and life."

Mr. Marquand earned his Bachelor's degree in business administration, finance from San Francisco State University. He is a Certified Chief Business Official by the California Association of School Business Officials. His wife of over 30 years is also from Marin County. They both look forward to making Marin their home again, where they will be close to their families and also have the opportunity to enjoy all the outdoor activities the area offers. 

He is working closely with Interim Chief Business Official, Terri Ryland, as well as District administrators and Business Services staff to ensure a smooth and successful transition.
