Sebastopol schools chief leaving for job in Marin

Sebastopol schools Superintendent Liz Schott has been named the new superintendent of Kentfield School District in Marin County. Her first day is July 1.

Schott was named a finalist for the top post at the 1,200-student district in February. The move was made official by a Kentfield School Board vote Wednesday.

Schott will earn $177,500 annually plus a $500 a month car allowance. She currently earns approximately $125,000 as superintendent in Sebastopol, where she also is principal at the kindergarten through eighth grade Brook Haven School. She also oversees special education programs.

Schott's departure comes at a time when the district is experiencing steep declining enrollment and the prospect of closing a school and consolidating campuses.

The five-member Sebastopol School Board will meet Monday night, when they are expected to discuss plans for finding Schott's replacement. Her final day is June 14.
