About Us

Making Every Education Dollar Count

California school districts must meet ever-increasing demands and responsibilities with severely limited budgets.

We understand the financial constraints and competing demands facing school administrators. Our services can help redistribute a part of the work load in a cost-effective manner, allowing administrators to concentrate on other important issues.

Jack Schreder & Associates About Us pageThe planning, funding and construction/modernization of school facilities involves many complex issues. With State school facility legislation changing each year, it is important and cost-effective to be represented by a Sacramento-based firm with a complete understanding of the legislative process.

We plan, analyze, and evaluate each district's facilities program while representing districts throughout the stages of the capital funding process. Our experience and training allow us to anticipate problems and offer productive solutions. We understand the interrelationship between local and State funding and analyze all funding options which include State and local dollars.

Our experience allows us to serve as a District liaison with outside agencies to adhere to critical timelines and organize projects to ensure that projects are completed on time and within budget. We offer services to small, medium and large districts to plan for current and future facility needs.

Jack Schreder & Associates Our Staff page



Jack Schreder, a respected and loved educator, founded Jack Schreder & Associates (JSA) 40 years ago. Jack was a graduate of Stanford University (Ed.D. - Education and Business), San Francisco State University (M.A. - School Administration) and Michigan State University (B.A. Economics).

In 1967 after receiving his doctorate from Stanford, Jack moved to Redding to become the first principal of Nova High School, an all 9th grade center. Jack recognized the importance of connecting students to school which was critical for the 1,200 9th grade students coming from 23 feeder schools. His shared goal with the teachers was to learn the names of each student within six weeks of the beginning of the year.

In 1974, Jack 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, his notable achievements included securing grant funding to build science rooms, establishing the countywide bookmobile and facilitating the founding of the local Shasta-Trinity Regional Occupational Program. He also secured initial funding for the Schreder Planetarium, which was named in his honor in 1979 and has been in continuous operation for school children and Northern California community members.

Following his tenure as a school superintendent, Jack became a lobbyist advocating on behalf of the Association of California School Administrators, San Diego City Schools and others. He then went on to found Jack Schreder and Associates. In the last four decades, the consulting firm has secured in excess of $2 billion for California school districts. Elona Cunningham, Jack’s daughter, who has worked at JSA for the last 25 years, continues to operate the business.
