Lompoc Unified Superintendent Abruptly Resigns
The man who has served as superintendent of Lompoc Unified for the past decade has stepped down. Trevor McDonald announced his resignation Monday, citing a need to focus more on his family.
According to the district, McDonald was the longest-serving superintendent since 1975. His resignation took effect immediately.
“I am proud of the work I have done in LUSD. The time has come for me to focus on supporting my wife in her career pursuits, as she has done for me for many years,” said McDonald. “We have two potential 2024 and/or 2028 Olympic athletes that I need to support in better fashion.”
“My focus has always been on the kids and doing what’s best for them,” McDonald added. “The students of Lompoc deserve a quality education and I am honored to have helped provide that to them.”
McDonald’s resignation followed a closed session meeting of the school board. It comes one month after a district survey revealed concerns about his leadership.
