The Board of Trustees will engage an executive search firm to assist in the search for a new superintendent to replace Dr. Joan Rosas when she retires in June 2021. Once established, the timeline will be posted on this page, and regular updates will be provided to the SMFCSD community. 

With the help of the search firm, the Board will conduct a robust community outreach effort to solicit feedback as to what qualities and attributes you would like to see in our next superintendent. Focus groups will be scheduled and an online survey launched to gather stakeholder input.

Please watch for future communication from the Board as to how and when you can get involved.
