New school chief in McKinleyville


McKINLEYVILLE –  Following an extensive search and selection process, the McKinleyville Union School District (MUSD) Board of Trustees met June 3 and took action to hire Dr. Al Rosell as the new Superintendent.

Rosell is currently the principal at Willow Glen Elementary School in the San Jose Unified School District. He has nearly 20 years’ experience as an administrator at the school and district levels.

Prior to his administrative roles, Rosell taught math, social studies, Spanish and psychology. Rosell is bilingual (Spanish and English) and helped establish a dual language immersion program in his current school district.

Rosell earned his bachelor of science in Social Science and Spanish at BYU, and his MS in School Administration from National University. He holds a doctoral degree in Educational Leadership from San Francisco State University.

The current MUSD Superintendent, Michael Davies-Hughes, will be working with Rosell on a transition plan for the coming weeks. Rosell will be assuming full responsibility as Superintendent on July 1.
