 Public Invited to Provide Input on Search for San Diego County Superintendent of Schools

The San Diego County Board of Education is launching a nationwide search for a new superintendent who will lead the County Office of Education and support efforts to serve local school districts and educate the region’s most vulnerable children. The next step is gathering input from all of our stakeholders on what qualities are important for this individual to possess.

Members of the public are invited to participate in the superintendent search process in two ways:

In-person: Come to an open forum Wednesday, Feb. 1 from 7 to 8 p.m. in rooms 401 and 402 on SDCOE's Linda Vista campus (6401 Linda Vista Road, San Diego, CA 92111). Childcare and Spanish-language interpretation will be provided; American Sign Language interpretation is available upon request by emailing

Online: If you can’t make it to this forum, fill out the survey online. The survey will be available from Feb. 6 to 17 at

The San Diego County Office of Education serves as an exemplary regional resource to students, parents, districts, agencies, and businesses by working with 42 school districts enrolling over 500,000 students, more than 125 charter schools, and five community college districts in the county. SDCOE serves the county’s most vulnerable students and educates nearly 10,000 children through the Momentum Learning portfolio of schools (formerly known as Juvenile Court and Community Schools). The County Office has enjoyed many recent accomplishments in student achievement, and this superintendency represents one of the most extraordinary opportunities for educational leadership in the county and the state.

The search is being conducted by Hazard, Young, Attea & Associates consultants Darline P. Robles, Maria G. Ott, and Rudy Castruita.
