Gary Bowman, Executive Director and Brett Barley

15 May 2019

This past Monday evening, the California Montessori Project Governing Board unanimously approved the hiring of Brett Barley as CMP’s new Executive Director/Superintendent.  Brett’s first official day will be July 1st (at that time I will assume a consulting role with CMP through August).

Brett comes from a family of educators, his wife is a teacher, and he is a former elementary school teacher. This past year Brett served as Superintendent of Wonderful College Prep Academy in the Central Valley. Prior to that he was a Deputy State Superintendent in Nevada and was a Vice President at StudentsFirst, national education advocacy organization in Sacramento. He’s excited to return home to the Sacramento area with his wife and two boys (Brody who is 3 years old and Cal who is 1) and put them in CMP schools when the time is right. 

He can’t wait to meet the CMP team and get started (in fact, Brett and I will be visiting all of our CMP campuses this week to meet students and staff).

Thank you, in advance, for your warm welcome to Brett Barley, and, as always, thank you for the incredible support you have offered me these past 15 years.


Gary S. Bowman, M.S.Ed.
