Jack Schreder, a respected and loved educator and education supporter for more than 65 years, passed away at the age of 88 on June 5, 2022, surrounded by loved ones. Schreder had planned to retire on July 1, 2022 after 40 years of service with his consulting firm, Jack Schreder & Associates.
Schreder moved to Redding in 1967 to become the first principal at the new ninth-grade center, helping to pick the name “Nova” for the unique all-freshman school. He recognized the importance of connecting students to school, which was critical for 1,200 ninth-grade students coming together from 23 feeder schools. His shared goal with the teachers was to learn the names of each student in their classes by the end of the first six weeks of the school year.
In 1974, Schreder was elected Shasta County Superintendent of Schools at the age of 40, making him the youngest county superintendent of schools at the time. During the next four years, notable achievements included securing the grant funding needed to build science rooms, establishing the countywide bookmobile and being one of the founders of the local Shasta-Trinity Regional Occupational Program.
Following his tenure as superintendent, Schreder became a lobbyist advocating on behalf of the ACSA, San Diego City Schools and others. He went on to found, with his wife Kristen, Jack Schreder & Associates, a consulting company specializing in the procurement of funding for the modernization and construction of schools. During the last four decades, the company secured more than $2 billion in funding for California schools.
