    Scott Griffin was selected as the next Superintendent for the Fowler Unified School District, effective July 1, 2018.  Mr. Griffin has worked in Fowler Unified School District for the past 18 years in a variety of roles. 


Leadership Associates, a Superintendent Search Recruiting firm assisted the Board in the Superintendent search process that included community/staff/parent input along with the advertisement and recruitment of candidates for the position of Superintendent in Fowler Unified.  Candidates considered for interviews received detailed background checks by Leadership Associates before the Board selected four finalists to interview.  The Board selected Mr. Griffin as the next Superintendent, upon Mr. Cederquist’s retirement, at the regular Board Meeting of October 25, 2017.  

The Board of Trustees released the following statement on the hiring of Mr. Griffin as Superintendent:  “Mr. Griffin has demonstrated the work ethic, understanding of the communities of Fowler/Malaga, and support for teachers and staff that will make him a successful leader of Fowler Unified.  He will provide stability, continuity and the recognition of the need for continuous improvement in the Fowler Unified School District.  We, as a Board, have no doubt that the District will continue to grow and prosper under Mr. Griffin’s leadership, and continue the rich tradition of successful Superintendents as leaders of Fowler Unified.  Mr. Griffin is committed and vested in the Fowler and Malaga communities and believes strongly in our students, teachers and staff.  The Board is unanimous in that Mr. Griffin is the right Superintendent choice at the right time.”

Scott Griffin will work with current Superintendent, Eric Cederquist, through June 30, 2018 in order to provide for a smooth transition period.  

Please join the Board of Trustees in congratulating Scott Griffin as the next Superintendent of Fowler Unified School District.
