Vista Del Mar Has Their New Superintendent

Dr. Diane Cox, assistant superintendent of human resources at Bakersfield City School District has been named the chief of schools for Vista Del Mar School District.

She’s been with Bakersfield since 2013 and will resign on August 2. It's quite a shift going from Kern County to Santa Barbara County.

“I am grateful for the opportunity to have served BCSD and worked with such wonderful colleagues, students, and families,” said Dr. Cox. “I am looking forward to leading the instructional work for the district and having a positive impact on the education of the Vista Del Mar students.”

Christine Cornejo, director of human resources at BCSD, has filled the seat of interim assistant superintendent of human resources until the district can find a permanent replacement.
