Superintendent Search

The Placentia-Yorba Linda Unified School District (PYLUSD) will begin the search for a new superintendent following Dr. Jim Elsasser’s resignation announcement on April 18, 2022.

In late April, the PYLUSD Board of Education met to discuss and determine the next steps in this important process. Collectively, it was decided that the district will work with Education Support Services (ESS) Consulting Group. However, instead of launching a full superintendent search right away, ESS will assist the school district in producing a long-term transition plan.
