Grand Junction, COMesa County Valley School District 51 is pleased to announce the School Board voted unanimously Tuesday, May 7, 2019, to hire Dr. Brian Hill to serve as assistant superintendent. Dr. Hill will join the district in July 2019. 

"I am very excited to join the District 51 team,” Dr. Hill said. “I look forward to working with the Mesa County Valley community to engage, equip, and empower every student in D51 and ensure that they are ready for college, career, and life. Thank you to Dr. Sirko and the Board of Education for the opportunity to serve the students, families, and staff of District 51.”

Dr. Hill will come to District 51 with more than a decade of experience in education. He has served as a teacher, supervisor, principal, and special assistant to the superintendent in the 80,000-student Austin Independent School District in Austin, Texas. He has a Doctor of Education degree in educational leadership and policy from the University of Texas, helped with the passing of the largest bond measure in the Austin school district’s history, and won 2019 Region 13 TEPSAN of the Year, an award for Texas elementary principals and supervisors. 

Current D51 Assistant Superintendent Scott Cooper has decided to leave his position in June to pursue a principal job on the Western Slope. His work as assistant superintendent has been instrumental in many ways, particularly his advocacy for full-day kindergarten.
