Good Day Manteca Unified School District Community,
I would like to take the opportunity to briefly introduce myself and express my excitement to serve the Manteca Unified School District Community as your Deputy Superintendent of Schools. I am honored and enjoy the opportunity to work with each of you to support our students to reach their greatest potential.
My leadership philosophy involves the empowerment of all stakeholders through professional development; to be responsible for themselves and the duties they are assigned. I encourage innovative and original thinking, while maintaining state, district, and school standards. I believe in quality public education for all students and employees alike. My door is always open for a warm cup of coffee and professional conversation.
My education is a product of the University of California and the California State University School Systems. Having attended UC Santa Cruz, UC Davis, and CSU Sacramento, I have earned a Bachelor's degree in Psychology, a Master's Degree in Education, and a Doctorate in Educational Leadership. In addition to my University education, I am currently an officer in the United States Army and have graduated from multiple schools of military leadership.
My professional career over the last two decades has included but was not limited to : State and Federal categorical programs, Special Education, General Education, Recovery Programs (RTI and Continuation), departmentalized and instructional programs ranging from grades K-14. My leadership experiences have ranged from site administrative positions in both elementary and secondary schools, to three different Company commands, Battalion, Brigade command staff in the military. The culmination of these experiences has given me the perspective and appreciation to work with all of our stakeholders towards our common cause.
I am very impressed with the supportive culture and core academic accomplishments in the Manteca Unified School District. This exemplifies the pride and commitment of the staff, the students, and the community to a high quality education. We are all lucky to have the opportunity to work, learn, and share in such a great community!
Dr. Clark Burke
Deputy Superintendent of Schools
