Pleasanton school district's director of human resources Mark McCoy has been hired as assistant superintendent in the Dublin school district, where he also will have charge of human resources.
The appointment was announced at a meeting of the Dublin school board.
Pleasanton school superintendent Jim Hansen said he is happy for McCoy and his step up the administrative ladder, saying "this promotion is well deserved."
"His accomplishments were many, and we hate to see him go," Hansen said.
McCoy's last day will be Oct. 30, Hansen said. The district expects to have a new director of human resources by Nov. 3.
McCoy will replace Keith Rogenski, who left Dublin Unified in August for a post at the San Ramon Valley Unified School District as assistant superintendent of human resources.
Dublin school superintendent Stephen Hanke told his board that McCoy will start "just as soon as we can get him here."
McCoy, who has a 19-year career in public education, has been a longtime fixture in Pleasanton. A 30-year Tri-Valley resident, he taught science for 10 years at Pleasanton Middle School before he was promoted in 2007 to vice principal at Foothill High School.
As director of human resources here for the last five years, he has supervised public debate on proposed calendar changes, overseen discussions with parents and teachers regarding new principal search processes and managed collective bargaining.
He has a bachelor's degree from San Jose State and a master's degree in education from Cal State East Bay.
