Public Input Sought as Search for New School Superintendent Starts

• Outline Qualities that Match District

BY JULIE WALLACH


The Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District Board of Education is asking community members to provide input on the characteristics they would like to see in a new school superintendent.
The board members are soliciting opinions in response to the prompt, “What personal and professional qualities for an incoming superintendent will be a match for the Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District?”
The information will be used in selecting a new superintendent that will begin work on July 1. Tim Cuneo, the current superintendent, will retire June 30.
Ideas will be heard and information about the search process shared by Peggy Lynch and Michael Escalante of Leadership Associates, the recruiting firm assigned to the task of finding a new superintendent.
Community members can share their thoughts at Grant Elementary School and Lincoln Middle School on Feb. 1 from 5:30-6:30 p.m. and at Malibu High on Feb. 2, from 5:30-6:30 p.m. No appointment is necessary to attend and participate in the discussions.
If interested parties are unable to attend the session, but wish to share their thoughts, contact Leadership Associates by email to plynch@leadershipassociates.org or mescalante@leadershipassociates.org (subject line: “SMMUSD Superintendent Search”). 
Faxes can be sent to 949-461-9119, or community members may call Lynch or Escalante at 909-985-7814.
