Community Input Invited for Next Assistant Superintendent of Student Services and Programs

Community Input Invited for Next Assistant Superintendent of Student Services and Programs

The San Diego County Office of Education (SDCOE) has begun the search for the next assistant superintendent of Student Services and Programs, which includes Juvenile Court and Community Schools, as well as the Special Education; Student Attendance, Safety, and Wellbeing; Student Wellness and School Culture; Whole Child and Community Design; and Outdoor Education departments. Dr. Gloria E. Ciriza will vacate the position on June 30 and begin the job as county superintendent of schools on July 1.

An important part of the search is to gather input from educational partners regarding what they would like to see in the next assistant superintendent of Student Services and Programs. To ensure the search is a collaborative and inclusive process, an anonymous online survey invites public input about the strengths and challenges of SDCOE and the Student Services and Programs division, as well as the desired professional experience and leadership characteristics of the next assistant superintendent.

This survey is available in English and Spanish from May 22 to June 3.

The assistant superintendent is responsible for the planning, coordinating, administering, delivering, and evaluating of services for the Student Services and Programs Division. The assistant superintendent also ensures that resources and support are provided for the leadership of small school districts within San Diego County. The assistant superintendent is a member of the Strategic Leadership Team that sets priorities and guides work to achieve SDCOE’s North Star goal of reducing poverty and increasing belongingness through public education. With thriving students at the center of everything we do, SDCOE’s strategy to reach this goal is transformative teaching and learning in community schools.

The search is being conducted by Leadership Associates and applications are due June 3.
