SAN MARCOS (November 19, 2015) At a Special Board meeting on November 17, 2015 the Palomar Community College District Governing Board held closed session deliberations to consider their options for a new Superintendent/President.  At the conclusion of their deliberations the Board announced the following:  “In closed session, the Board took an action item to close the search for Superintendent/President of Palomar College.”

In closing the search, the Board unanimously agreed to close the current search process and re-open with a new search in the near future.

The District’s Superintendent/President position was vacated by Robert P. Deegan when he retired at the end of June 2015.  Adrian Gonzales, originally hired by the District as the Assistant Superintendent/Vice President for Student Services in 2013, has been serving as the Interim Superintendent/President since Deegan’s departure.  Gonzales will continue to serve as the Interim Superintendent/President while the search process continues.
