Del Mar school district approves hires for two key positions

By Karen Billing

The Del Mar Union School District board approved the hiring of two new district cabinet members at its June 26 meeting. The district has hired Jason Romero as the new assistant superintendent of human resources and Dinah Brown as the new coordinator of curriculum and instruction.

Romero, who replaces the departed Tim Asfazadour, comes from San Ysidro School District where he has worked for the last 17 years. At San Ysidro he was a teacher, a principal and, most recently, an assistant superintendent of human resources.

“People have talked about how dynamic, personable and knowledgeable he is and we know how lucky we are to have him,” said Del Mar Union School District Superintendent Holly McClurg.

Romero said it was “bittersweet” to leave the district that he had worked at for so long but was humbled to be able to work in Del Mar.

“I’m excited to be able to come to Del Mar, I’m excited to be a part of this team and will not take it for granted,” Romero said.

Brown takes over the new position of coordinator of curriculum and instruction coming from Oceanside Unified School District where she has worked for the last 24 years. Most recently she oversaw a transitional kindergarten pilot program and was a program specialist in math, writing, and the Common Core State Standards — “Skills that will be well utilized in Del Mar,” McClurg said. Trustee Kristin Gibson said she knows Brown’s stellar reputation in the math field and said she feels Brown is the only person qualified for this position at DMUSD.

McClurg said Brown is also very well respected for her professional development work.

Brown said it was a tough decision to leave Oceanside but to be able to join the high quality DMUSD team is “the greatest gift.”

“This is an opportunity I’ve dreamed of my whole life and I finally get to do it,” Brown said.
