- NEW LEADER Curt Dubost, Paso Unified School District's newest superintendent, will begin his duties July 1.
"He's a proven leader, with experience in three different districts. Over his career, he has a record of improving districts—both from student achievement to a financial standpoint. Lastly, he's local—he's from North County—and wants to see our district succeed," Peterson said.
Dubost was selected as the finalist from more than 30 candidates who applied for the position during the San Luis Obispo County Office of Education's search.
According to the Office of Education, Dubost has a long résumé in leading districts. He was the superintendent of the Templeton Unified School District from 1992 to 2002 and the Taft Unified School District superintendent from 2002 to 2007. Dubost came out of retirement to lead the San Miguel Joint Union School District in 2010.
"My commitment to students has shown in all the districts where I have worked, and I plan to continue my commitment to students in Paso Robles as well," Dubost said in a statement from the district. Δ
