Santa Maria-Bonita School District Seeks Feedback on Search for New Superintendent


SANTA MARIA, California – The Santa Maria-Bonita School District is looking for a new superintendent and wants to hear from the community.

The school district board is asking the public for their input on the research to ensure it is a collaborative and inclusive process.

Board members are asking students, staff, parents and other community members to participate in an anonymous online survey.

The survey asks people to list the strengths of the district. He also asks for feedback on the challenges the new superintendent will face, as well as the important issues the superintendent should know about and the qualities and characteristics the person should have.

The poll also asks people to rank their priorities for the new superintendent. This includes areas in which people think the candidate should be experienced and important qualities such as empathy, courage, and vision.

The online survey will be open until December 3 at 4 p.m.

Current Superintendent Luke Ontiveros announced last month that he plans to retire at the end of 2021. He started in 2016 and had planned to leave in June 2020, but extended his tenure due to the pandemic.

If you need help completing the online survey or would like to complete it in Mixtec, call the Family Engagement Office at 805-361-8117 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
