Trustees in the Rocklin Unified School District have named Roger Stock as the new superintendent, replacing veteran Superintendent Kevin Brown, who is retiring after more than a decade in the job.
The unanimous vote at the district board meeting Wednesday night capped a search that drew 47 candidates, a district spokesman said. Stock takes the job starting July 1 and will receive an annual salary of $185,000.
Stock, 45, is the chief academic officer for the San Juan Unified School District in Sacramento. This week he became one of two top officials placed in charge of the San Juan district pending an investigation of its superintendent, Glynn Thompson.
Thompson was placed on paid leave Wednesday while a contract law firm investigates nine complaints filed with the state Department of Fair Employment and Housing alleging a hostile work environment.
Stock is a lifelong Northern California resident with more than 20 years experience as a teacher, principal and district leader in the San Juan and Elk Grove unified school districts.
