Superintendent Search


After being appointed as Superintendent of Schools in 2016, Dr. Greg Plutko has announced his decision to retire from the Placentia-Yorba Linda Unified School District (PYLUSD) in December 2020.

In September, the PYLUSD Board of Education began the process of hiring the district’s next superintendent to ensure a smooth transition of leadership takes place prior to Dr. Plutko’s departure in December. Details of the search process were provided to district stakeholders directly via email and on this web page. 

In October, the Board of Education named Dr. Jim Elsasser as the new Superintendent pending contract negotiations and final Board approval on November 10, 2020. Click here to read the Board's full announcement.
