Welcome back to a new school year!

I am proud and honored to have been chosen to serve your educational community as its District Superintendent (interim) for the 2024-2025 school year.

This year will unquestionably be one of challenges and important decisions, but I am confident that we can work through all of the financial issues ahead of us. Keeping focus on your children's classroom experience will always be a priority for us at the Calaveras USD. 

Although I am new to Calaveras USD, I am hardly new to being a school district superintendent in the central valley.  For more than 22 years, I served as a district superintendent, most of which was spent as your "next door neighbor" in the Linden Unified School District (19 1/2 years).

My past experience also includes time as a 7th/8th grade teacher, an elementary school principal, and adjunct professor of education at the Teachers College of San Joaquin, University of the Pacific, and CSU, Stanislaus.         

Wishing you, your children and your families the best! 


Ronald J. Estes, Ed.D.

District Superintendent (interim)
