  • Support Delta staff in continuing to provide high quality academic, vocational, English as a Second Language (ESL), and remedial instruction, and to contribute to continuous work force improvement to advance California’s economic growth.
  • Increase local access to Delta courses and programs to Tracy and Mountain House residents. Work to expand enrollment, improve retention, completion and transfer to 4 year universities.

Following his service to our country, Casey joined Tracy Unified School District, where he served as Associate Superintendent for Business Services from 1994 until July of this year. During his tenure as an administrator, he earned his Doctor of Education in Organizational Leadership from the University of La Verne where he currently serves as a Senior Adjunct Professor in the LaFetra College of Education. He has also taught School District Budgeting for the University of Southern California, Rossier School of Education. Continuing with his love of learning, Dr. Goodall is taking Delta College course this Fall.

Casey has been honored to work with local community members and parents in improving learning conditions at local schools that had fallen into disrepair. His advocacy for practices and conditions that promote learning has enriched his life as much as students he's supported.


Looking to bring his lifetime of educational and practical experience to the San Joaquin Delta College board, Casey will work collaboratively with his fellow board members to promote the value of higher education and how Delta can fulfill that need.

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

It has been my privilege to serve students, parents and teachers for the last 25 years as Tracy Unified School District Associate Superintendent. I’m grateful to have worked with local educational leaders to create practices and conditions that promote learning, both at the K-12 and post-secondary levels.

In 1960, the UC Regents of the State Board of Education proposed the California Master Plan for Higher Education, a revolutionary educational plan intended to provide a high quality college education to every resident of California, regardless of their socio-economic status. The plan established two goals for California Community Colleges: 1) to provide vocational and academic instruction through the first two years of undergraduate education; and 2) to provide remedial instruction, English as a Second Language courses, adult noncredit instruction, community service courses, and workforce training services. In addition, this plan gives priority to eligible Community College transfer students to enroll in California State and University of California schools. I support the established goals established for Community Colleges as one of the most promising and affordable support systems in our society to reduce poverty, close socio-economic and educational gaps, and to allow every citizen to reach his or her potential. Yet, this system, as powerful as it is, has not been uniformly successful with all student sub-groups. 

We are fortunate to have Delta College, a higher learning institution that prepares students with top-notch training for jobs that support a family or for furthering their college education. Yet, many graduating high school students or adults, looking to augment their career education, overlook the affordable first-class learning experience Delta provides. We must remedy that. I would like to see Delta College expand its reach and enrollment, particularly for students in the Tracy and Mountain House areas, students from lower income families, and any other resident of the San Joaquin Delta College boundaries who can benefit from an affordable education. 

As your representative, I’ll work collaboratively with my fellow board members, to promote the value of higher education and how Delta can fulfill that need. I’ll also ensure, in these uncertain times, students have a safe and healthy educational experience. Lastly, as someone who has taught School District Budgeting for the University of Southern California, I will provide strong fiscal oversight for our budget. 

I proudly served my country in the US Navy, now I’d be proud to serve you on the San Joaquin Delta Community College Board of Trustees.
