Superintendent Search

The school district's current leader is Dr. Michael Matthews, who is serving in the role of Interim Superintendent from July 1, 2022, through June 30, 2023.
The Placentia-Yorba Linda Unified School District (PYLUSD) Board of Education has contracted with Hazard, Young, Attea, Associates (HYA) to assist in the advertising, search, and recruitment of a new superintendent. HYA is a premier search firm working to recruit and develop great school district leaders. Associates Micah Ali ([email protected]) and Dr. Valerie Pitts ([email protected]) have begun working with the Board and Executive Cabinet on the search process and timeline. The goal is for the new superintendent to begin July 1, 2023.
In February, the Board sought input from all district stakeholders through a comprehensive leadership survey. The survey closed on March 3, 2023. Results will be reported by groups and no individual respondent will be identified. The results are compiled in the documents below.
Mr. Micah Ali, Lead Associate for Hazard, Young, Attea & Associates, provided an overview of the process and timeline for the superintendent search to the Board of Education at the February 7, 2023, meeting. He then shared the results from the comprehensive leadership survey on March 15, 2023.
