Lompoc Unified Assistant Superintendent to Retire

Lompoc Unified’s assistant superintendent of business services, Dr. John Karbula, will retire at the end of January

Dr. Karbala has spent over 34 years in public education. He was a finalist for “Negotiator of the Year” for the Association of California School Administrators. Under his leadership, LUSD earned positive budget certifications every year, even as district employees received the largest percentage raises of any school district in Santa Barbara County.

“Dr. Karbula has been a great team player working for the betterment of all students, but especially our most vulnerable populations,” said Superintendent Trevor McDonald. “He is a man of great integrity and has added to the pragmatic and positive work environment for all Lompoc Unified staff members.”
