About Us


IMG.jpgSan Rafael City Schools is comprised of two distinct and separate public school districts; the San Rafael Elementary School District, and the San Rafael High School District, designated as San Rafael City Schools under the Charter for the City of San Rafael.

These two legal entities are governed by a single Board of Education, with administrative oversight and management by a single district administrative and support staff. This long-standing governance structure is a model of efficiency and effectiveness, maximizing the public's fiscal resources by combining the oversight, leadership, fiscal management and day-to-day  operations into a single leadership team.

The Superintendent of Schools is the "Chief Operating Officer" of the organization, responsible for the administration and management of all district operations based upon the philosophy and direction of the five-member publicly elected Board of Education.  

Since 2007, Dr. Michael Watenpaugh has served as the District's Superintendent of Schools. The Superintendent's Office staff includes Executive Assistant Theresa Allyn who supports both the Superintendent and the Board of Education.  Marta Biton is the District's Community Liaison. 

Members of our community can contact individual members of the Board of Education, and/or the entire Board through this office. 

The Superintendent's Office is open during the same regular business hours of the District Office.
