Tim Sbranti

CCEE Governing Board Vice Chair

Tim Sbranti has devoted his life to public service both as an educator and elected official.

After earning his BA in Government and his teaching credential from Sacramento State in 1998, Sbranti returned to teach and coach at his alma mater Dublin High School. During the course of his career in the classroom, Sbranti was his school’s Student Activities Director for 16 years and has broad experience teaching both College Prep and CTE courses including Civics, Economics, World History, U.S. History, Construction Trades, Journalism, and Speech and Debate. In addition, Sbranti has been a leader in alternative education through his work delivering online instruction (pre-pandemic), and working with students of all ages, backgrounds, and needs in Adult Education. Sbranti was previously a successful Head Coach of the Boys and Girls Varsity Tennis teams and Girls Varsity Basketball teams and served on the Boys Varsity Basketball coaching staff, a program that has consistently been one of the best in Northern California. All of his teams earned All-Scholastic team honors as well. Sbranti is currently the Athletic Director, Journalism Advisor, and an Independent Study teacher focused on credit-recovery for students at risk of not graduating.

Outside of his work in the Dublin Unified School District, Sbranti has also emerged as a statewide leader in education. After nearly a decade serving on the California Teachers Association State Council promoting public education and working on major policy initiatives, State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson selected Sbranti to be President of his Transition Committee immediately following his election in 2010. Torlakson also asked Sbranti to lead his statewide non-profit foundation Californians Dedicated to Education, where he served as Chief Executive Officer until August of 2013 and now holds an Administrative Services credential. Sbranti is currently the Board Co-Chair of SupplyBank.org, which is an organization focused on delivering free school supplies, diapers and early childhood hygiene products, and dental kits to meet the basic material needs of all homeless and low-income students throughout California. Sbranti has also served as a Board Trustee for the Chabot-Las Positas Community College District since 2019 and is involved in a leadership capacity with several civic and non-profit organizations in his community.

Sbranti’s service as an elected official began in 2002 when he was first elected to the Dublin City Council. In 2008 Sbranti was elected as Mayor of Dublin where he helped guide the City through some of its most transformative years until being termed out of office in December of 2014. He initiated several new economic policies and incentive programs, successfully stimulating new business activity and was passionate about improving the City’s environmental, health, and wellness programs and building the City’s image and sense of community. For the past four years, Sbranti has been the Co-Chair of the Innovation Tri-Valley Leadership Group Education and Workforce Development Committee with Livermore Valley Joint USD Superintendent Dr. Kelly Bowers.

Sbranti is married to Stephanie, a Livermore native who currently serves as a Counselor at Valley Continuation High School in Dublin. Tim and Stephanie have a daughter named Sophia, a current student of the Dublin Unified School District. In his spare time, Sbranti is a sports broadcaster on Tri Valley Community Television (TV30).
