Pleasanton Unified Superintendent Will Leave This Summer

Pleasanton Unified School District Superintendent David Haglund has announced his departure, effective Aug. 1.

"Thinking back on these last seven years fills me with both pride and gratitude," Haglund wrote in a letter to staff. "Together, we have implemented innovative educational initiatives, funded construction projects to restore aged facilities, expanded student learning opportunities, embraced the growing diversity of our community, and fostered a culture of inclusivity within our schools. These accomplishments would not have been possible without your unwavering support, collaboration, and dedication to our children."

Haglund is heading back to Southern California to be closer to family. Deputy Superintendent Ed Diolazo will help with the search for a permanent replacement.

Haglund has led PUSD for nearly seven years. He served as deputy superintendent for the Santa Ana Unified School District from 2013 to 2017.
