Los Gatos–Saratoga Union High School District Welcomes New Superintendent

The Los Gatos–Saratoga Union High School District (LGSUHSD) has a new superintendent. Bill W. Sanderson took over this month. 

“Mr. Sanderson was selected after a rigorous, extensive search process which included interviews with 94 teachers, support staff, parents, Board, administrators, community and students and survey input from 458 participants,” according to the district. “This community outreach to all stakeholder groups provided the desired characteristics for our new superintendent and a guide for identifying truly viable candidates.  Once Mr. Sanderson was identified, a site visit to San Francisco Unified validated what the Board now knew - that he was the best candidate to lead our district.”  

Sanderson’s career in public education spans 30 years. He most recently served as Assistant Superintendent of High Schools of San Francisco Unified School District — a job he held for eight years. 

“Growing up in rural Loris, SC, just after desegregation, Mr. Sanderson saw firsthand the isolation of underserved populations and the life-changing opportunities that education can offer,” the district said. “While neither of his parents graduated from high school, they instilled in him the core values of education and hard work.”

LGSUHSD is a two-facility high school district Santa Clara County. It was named the best public school district in California by Stacker earlier this year.
