Search on for New Superintendent

The effort to replace retiring superintendent Dr. David Cash got underway earlier this week as the five-member board of the Santa Barbara Unified School District voted unanimously to hire Illinois-based HYA Executive Search to find a successor. Board President Pedro Paz said boardmembers have “a good level of trust” in working with HYA, primarily because the firm had helped the district bring Cash aboard as superintendent in 2011. The price for HYA’s services is $20,000, the least expensive of four proposals. Cash steps down in July.
