Dear SFUSD Families:  

 

I am writing to you on behalf of all of my colleagues on the SFUSD Board of Education.

 

Given the news of Superintendent Richard A. Carranza’s likely departure to serve as Houston’s new superintendent, the Board of Education has moved swiftly to ensure a smooth transition and continued positive momentum for our district.

 

While we begin the community process of searching for a new superintendent to serve our district, the Board of Education is united in choosing Deputy Superintendent Myong Leigh as SFUSD’s interim superintendent.

 

Mr. Leigh has been with SFUSD since 2000 and has successfully managed day-to-day operations and overseen key district initiatives. Our district has tremendous leadership throughout our schools and central offices. Mr. Leigh will be working with a great team at SFUSD.  

 

We are grateful to have had Superintendent Carranza at the helm for the past seven years--four as superintendent and three as a deputy. Under his leadership, SFUSD has maintained a focus on students’ academic growth through effective common-core aligned teaching and learning while also developing students’ social, emotional and physical well being. Our teachers and other have received more resources to do their critical work, including greater compensation, professional learning opportunities and access to technology.

 

The board takes seriously our responsibility to ensure the most capable and qualified leader for our school district moving forward. In the near future there will be a public meeting to discuss a selection process for the next superintendent of schools. Our national search process will be inclusive, transparent, and thorough.  

 

Without a doubt, we will prioritize finding a leader who shares our vision for ensuring every graduate is ready to succeed in college and careers. We will prioritize someone who has a track record of leading around our enduring goals of student achievement, access, equity, and accountability. And we will seek someone who can work with you and our entire community to move our district closer to our vision.

 

As we embark on the search for a new leader for SFUSD, input from our families is critical. Please check our website, sfusd.edu, for updates on future public meetings where the Board will gather input on the superintendent search and selection process.

 

All our school administrators are looking forward to greeting you and your children back to school on August 15.


 

Sincerely,  

 

Matt Haney

President, SF Board of Education
