ABOUT THE SAN RAFAEL COMMUNITY
San Rafael is the oldest, largest and most culturally diverse city in Marin and also enjoys the best weather. San Rafael is a lively business and cultural center located in an area of incomparable natural beauty.
At the city’s heart is its charming, vibrant downtown shopping district with a mixture of Victorian buildings, ethnic restaurants, retail stores and financial institutions. In July 2017, the California Arts Council selected San Rafael as one of California’s premier state-designated arts and culture districts.
The San Rafael community enjoys seasonal events such as the Thursday night farmers markets and summertime concerts, and offers many sites to visit and activities such as the nearby authentic recreation of Mission San Rafael Arcangel; founded in 1817 as part of California’s mission chain; many beautifully restored turn-of-the century buildings, including the Falkirk Cultural Center, and the 106-year-old Dominican University; and the Marin County Civic Center, home to the county’s government offices and an architectural treasure, designed by architect Frank Lloyd Wright.
Parklands and open space account for nearly 30 percent of the city’s land. Since it borders the San Pablo Bay, San Rafael has an abundance of marinas and many water-oriented recreational activities are available. Nature lovers will appreciate the quiet beauty of China Camp State Park, a 1,600-acre park with hiking and biking trails and overnight campsites.
As California’s Premier Executive Search and Leadership Development Firm, Leadership Associates has assisted school boards in their selection of superintendents in more than 385 California school districts and organizations since 1996.
The educational agencies we have served range from school districts of all sizes to statewide educational and non-profit organizations. Boards of Education select our firm primarily because of our track record of success, our experience & skill, our network, and our integrity. Because we work for the Board, the search process is also an opportunity for the Board to solidify their own teamwork and set the direction for the future of their district. The process we use, therefore, produces consistently positive outcomes for the Board, staff and community.
In addition to Executive Search Services, Leadership Associates provides Executive Leadership Development Services, which includes professional superintendent support and advisement, quarterly facilitated regional group sessions, access to professional resources, supplemental services, and an annual two-day summer institute with a focus on research and best practices.
