Introduction and Description:

The District is beginning its search for a qualified candidate to become its new superintendent of schools as of July 1, 2021. In order to ensure an orderly transition, the Board of Education wants to finalize a selection for the new superintendent by the 14th of May, 2021. To help in the search for the most qualified candidate the School District is seeking to retain the services of an executive search firm or individual with experience in the recruitment of superintendents for mid-sized school districts.

Morgan Hill Unified School District The Morgan Hill Unified School District (MHUSD) encompasses nearly 300 square miles and serves the ethnically diverse population of Morgan Hill, San Martin, and a small portion of South San Jose.

The District serves approximately 8,500 students and is composed of six elementary schools (TK-5), two elementary/middle schools (K-8), one Dual Immersion magnet program (K-8), two middle schools (6-8), two comprehensive high schools (9-12), one continuation high school and a community adult school. We not only offer our students an exceptional education in the classroom, but we also offer an array of extracurricular opportunities as well. The District is the largest employer in the City of Morgan Hill with approximately 800 total employees of which about 400 are teachers.

MHUSD’s Board of Education is committed to equal opportunity for all individuals in education. Our programs and activities do not discriminate on the basis of gender, gender identity, age, sex, race, color, religion, ancestry, national origin, ethnic group identification, marital or parental status, physical or mental disability, sexual orientation or the perception of one or more of such characteristics. The Board actively promotes programs that ensure that discriminatory practices are eliminated in all District activities.
