Dear Walnut Creek School District Community,
I am pleased to announce that Peter Simack, former principal of Marchus Schools since 1995, has been selected as the new Director of Special Services in Walnut Creek School District. The Walnut Creek School District Governing Board approved Peter’s selection at their November 26th meeting last evening.
Peter comes to us with background at the Contra Costa County Office of Education in Special Education, Marchus School Counseling, and ROP. He served as a special education teacher from 1987-94. Peter also has served as Director of Education at Bay High School in San Francisco.
His past presentations include: Educating students with emotional and behavioral challenges and numerous presentations on the current Marchus School special education program.
When queried about Peter, Contra Costa County employees spoke of Peter’s integrity, his ability to lead and support diverse groups within the special education community, and his genuine commitment to ensuring that every student be successful.
We are delighted that Peter Simack has joined the Walnut Creek School District and know that you will offer him a warm WCSD welcome.
