The San Dieguito Union High School District Board of Trustees and its community seek a dynamic educational leader with a proven track record of success. This individual should demonstrate a vision and commitment to the over 13,000 students served by the District.

SDUHSD serves students from five elementary school districts in the northern portion of San Diego County: Encinitas, Rancho Santa Fe, Cardiff, Solana Beach, and Del Mar. Students from those districts matriculate through The SDUHSD’s middle schools and high schools, with the exception of those from the Rancho Santa Fe School District, who begin as high school freshman. Booming population growth and demographic diversity have characterized the northern portion of San Diego County and the district for the past 15 years. Families from all parts of the world are attracted to the inviting climate and exceptional learning institutions, enriching our schools with a wide variety of languages and cultural backgrounds.

SDUHSD serves as a model for the Professional Learning Community (PLC) philosophy, in which teachers and site leaders work collaboratively with the shared goal of improving student learning through the use of identified Essential Learning Outcomes (ELOs) for all students. The California State Standards (CSS) provide the foundation for powerful classroom instruction, effective intervention strategies, and rigorous and relevant curriculum. In addition, SDUHSD students continue to enjoy exemplary athletic, music, art and enrichment programs that foster well rounded students who are prepared for global citizenship. Social emotional health as well as student safety and connectedness continues to be a priority in the district.
