Hemet Unified School District superintendent search

Dr. Phil Pendley, superintendent of the Hemet Unified School District, announced his retirement last week. The board has already engaged a search firm to find a successor to Pendley.

If you have ideas and thoughts about the next superintendent, the board is soliciting these comments. See below:

Notice to the Public

Request for Community Input

Subject: Superintendent Search

The Governing Board of Hemet Unified School District will select a new district superintendent. Community input about the desired characteristics to be used in recruiting and selecting this person is desired. The board is soliciting input to respond to these two questions: What personal and professional qualities for an in-coming superintendent will be a match for the Hemet Unified School District? What do you see as the strengths of the district and the major challenges facing the district in the years ahead?

Walter Buster and Rene Townsend of Leadership Associates were selected to advise the Board in this important process. They will be in our district on Monday, April 12, 2010.

The opportunity for the community to share its input and hear more about the process will be at an Open Forum to be held at the Professional Development Service Center Board Room, 1791 W. Acacia Ave., Hemet (corner of Lyon and Acacia Ave.) from 5:00 to 6:00 p.m. on April 12, 2010.

If you are unable to attend the Open Forum, input may also be offered through fax, letter, email, telephone or individual conversation by contacting the Board’s advisors. You may send a fax to 949-461-9119; a letter to PMB-455, 23052-H Alicia Parkway, Mission Viejo, CA 92692; an email to; or speak by phone to either Mr. Buster or Ms. Townsend, at 949-461-9119.
