SEARCH FIRM CANVASSES SAN MARINO COMMUNITY FOR INPUT ON SUPERINTENDENT QUALITIES AND QUALIFICATIONS
Search firm consultants James Guerra and Mike Escalante met with numerous San Marino stakeholders throughout the day on Wednesday, February 27 and Thursday, February 28 to hear their thoughts on desired qualifications and characteristics for the next SMUSD superintendent. Each consultant met with different constituencies, both individually and in small groups, such as students, teachers, staff, administrators, parents, and various school and community groups.
In addition, Mr. Guerra and Dr. Escalante received input during two community-wide meetings held at different times of the day in order to be as accommodating as possible to work and day-care schedules.

Based on the input obtained from all constituencies, the consultants will develop a superintendent profile and job description for the School Board's review. JG Consulting plans on posting the advertised superintendent position nationwide in order to attract the most qualified candidates on Monday, March 4 with an April 4 application deadline.
The Board thanks all of those community members who met with the consultants and/or filled out the online survey to provide their thoughts and opinions regarding the ideal superintendent for San Marino Unified.
