The Orinda Union School District Board of Trustees has selected Aida Glimme, Associate Superintendent of Educational Services for the Acalanes Union High School District, as its next superintendent. She will replace outgoing superintendent Dr. Carolyn Seaton.

"The board's process in selecting Orinda Union School District's next Superintendent was thorough and inclusive, and we were able to leverage technology to connect with a broad range of stakeholders in our community to gather feedback," said Board President Liz Daoust. "Aida Glimme's strong, thoughtful, and visionary leadership, in addition to her commitment to equity were impressive, and she will bring a breadth of knowledge and experience to our District."

Glimme immigrated to the United States as a refugee from Bosnia in 1992. She received a B.S. in molecular, cellular, and developmental biology from the University of California, Santa Barbara and an M.Ed. in educational leadership from Chapman University. She has worked in public education for 22 years.

"I am honored and thrilled to serve as the new Orinda Union School District Superintendent,” Glimme said in a statement. “I am eager to continue working with the community that I know, a community that is highly committed to excellence in education, high academic achievement, and supporting students. I look forward to working with you, the Orinda students, staff, and parents in my new role, as I learn from you about the District and share my experiences so that we can grow together."
