Hello Brisbane community! My name is Ronan Collver and I have assumed the duties as the Superintendent of the Brisbane School District as of July 1, 2016. I am very excited to join this community and I look forward to jumping in with both feet. My career in public education over the past 23 years includes being a classroom teacher, vice-principal and Superintendent/Principal. I received my Bachelor’s Degree from San Diego State University and both my Elementary Teaching Credential and Administrative Services Credential from Humboldt State University. Having served as a Superintendent/Principal for the past ten years, I have developed a strong understanding of all areas of running a school district and I look forward to lending these skills to improving an already outstanding school district.  

I enjoy collaborating with families, teachers and students in developing strategies so that all students can achieve their highest academic, emotional and social potential. I believe that our educational system works best when communities come together and lend a hand in the education of our youth. I look forward to establishing partnerships with local business and community members so that we can be successful in reaching all of our goals.

My wife, Laura, and I recently relocated to Brisbane from a small town in Humboldt County. We are enjoying all of the benefits of living in this region and exploring all that it has to offer.  We have two wonderful children- Dylan, 22, lives in South Lake Tahoe where he is attending Lake Tahoe Community College while working in the ski/snowboard industry and pursuing his new found love of cooking. Bridget, 19, just finished her first year at UC Santa Cruz and is studying History and Politics. We enjoy spending as much time as possible together by attending baseball games, concerts, and discovering new restaurants.
