The Banks School District announced the hiring of Brian Sica as the district’s next superintendent. He will begin July 1.
Sica’s credentials begin in Idaho, where he worked as a coach and teacher in the Shelly Joint School District. His dissertation lists him as a chemistry and physics instructor there and later at the Hillsboro School District. In Hillsboro, he rose to become an assistant principal at Hillsboro’s Century and Hillsboro High Schools. Beginning in 2015, Sica served as a principal at the Beaverton School District before taking his present job there as the Administrator for Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment.
Sica received his BA in Chemistry Education from the University of Idaho and an MA in Science Education from Montana State University, followed by a Doctor of Education degree from the University of Oregon.
Previously, a field of 15 candidates selected from more than 30 applications was winnowed down to two finalists: Melissa Goff, currently an educational consultant and former school superintendent, and Sica, most recently holding the title of Administrator for Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment in the Beaverton School District, where he previously served as a school principal.
Sica and his family currently live in Hillsboro, the district said.
