Dixon will serve as interim in the role previously held by Dean West, who was recently promoted to the associate superintendent of business services at the Orange County Department of Education. Dixon has served as the district’s director of facilities since 2014.

In addition to his experience in school facilities, Dixon has earned the chief business official certification by the California Association of School Business Officials (CASBO), the highest level of certification offered by the organization. He has a Bachelor of Science degree in business administration from Sacramento State University, a Master of Business Administration degree from the University of Phoenix, and school business management graduate certification from the University of Southern California. 

“I am excited to have someone with Mr. Dixon’s credentials serve in the interim position,” said Superintendent of Schools Jason Viloria. “His experience working in LBUSD and his background in school business and facilities makes him ideally suited for this position.”

The Laguna Beach Unified School District Board of Education will consider the appointment of a permanent assistant superintendent in the spring.
