Superintendent Search

The Santa Maria-Bonita School Board is in the process of conducting an Executive Search for the District’s next Superintendent. Leadership Associates, an executive search firm, was selected to advise the Board in this important process. A contract with Leadership Associates was approved at the November 10, 2021, Meeting of the Board of Education.

The Superintendent search process will include input opportunities, robust recruitment and outreach efforts, intensive and confidential vetting of candidates, and presentation of candidates to the SMBSD Board of Education. The Board of Education is solely responsible for hiring the new Superintendent. The Board will seek, receive, and consider all input from the community, review all applications, interview candidates, and select the new Superintendent.

Information about the timeline, process, job posting, survey, and FAQs will be posted here.  Please check this webpage for ongoing updates and important announcements regarding the superintendent search.
