Superintendent Search Surveys

The New Haven Unified School District is seeking the community's input in its search for a Superintendent.

In January, New Haven Unified Superintendent Dr. Arlando Smith announced his intent to retire at the end of this 2018-19 school year.  The Board has begun its search for a new, highly qualified Superintendent of Schools. In order to facilitate that search, the District has secured the services of McPherson & Jacobson, L.L.C., an executive search firm, the same firm which was used in the District’s last, successful search for a superintendent.

The search firm will be meeting with various stakeholders throughout the community to gain their input in regards to what qualities and characteristics they are looking for in a Superintendent.  The firm will host community forums in order to solicit community input. The date(s) of these community forums will be determined in the near future.

If you are interested in providing input, please click the appropriate link below to answer a brief, five-question survey.
