High school district considering superintendent search firm

By Karen Billing

As San Dieguito Union School District Superintendent Ken Noah recently announced his retirement, the district’s board of trustees is considering hiring a search firm to find his replacement. At its Feb. 21 meeting, the board directed staff to ask for proposals from three search firms.

The cost of hiring a search firm is not known at this time, according to Noah.

“Hiring a search firm does not mean that there are no internal candidates,” said Noah, noting that there’s a possibility an internal candidate could be selected to replace Noah as superintendent.

In January, Rick Schmitt, the district’s associate superintendent of educational services, was promoted to the newly created position of deputy superintendent as Noah was expected to devote more time to oversight and implementation of the Prop AA bond.

Noah has been with the district since 2008 and will retire on June 30.
