Welcome to CSD

Dear CSD Community,


As you may know, the California Department of Education soon will be looking to fill the position of Superintendent at California School for the Deaf, Fremont. In the meantime, I will be temporarily assuming the duties and responsibilities of that position. During this time, I will be working closely with the current administrative team at CSD to make sure that CSD’s needs and responsibilities are fulfilled. 


Relating to the search, we are now working on creating a search committee that properly reflects the communities that CSD serves. We soon will be advertising the position vacancy. We will keep the community and the public updated as to the progress of the search. 


I would like to personally thank Clark Brooke for serving as CSD’s Superintendent for six years. His contributions to the school were invaluable and are sure to be long-lasting. Thanks to his leadership, CSD was able to navigate the pandemic and the unique challenges it poses while maintaining the high standards for which the school is nationally known.


I look forward to getting to know the CSD community more when the school is back in session in mid-August.


With compassion,


Nancy Hlibok Amann, Ph.D.

Interim Superintendent, CSD

Division Director, State Special Schools and Services at CDE
