Goleta Union School District Seeking Public Input on New Superintendent

Confidential survey is available online for parents, staff and the community; deadline is March 1

The Goleta Union School District Board of Trustees has started the search process for a new superintendent and is seeking input from parents, teachers, staff and community members on the qualities and characteristics desired in the district’s next leader.

A simple online survey is available to make it easy and convenient to provide feedback. Click here for the survey.

All answers are confidential. The district’s search firm, Leadership Associates, will read and compile a summary for the board’s review.

The survey is translated in both English and Spanish. Feedback should be submitted by March 1.

Superintendent Kathleen Boomer will be retiring at the end of June, and the board plans to have a new superintendent in place for the next school year.

“Our district has developed a great reputation statewide for excellent teachers, committed families and strong fiscal management,” said Susan Epstein, president of the Board of Trustees. “I am confident we will attract high-quality candidates for our superintendent search and have a smooth transition.”

— Susan Epstein is president of the Goleta Union School District Board of Trustees.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
