Superintendent Perondi to Retire at end of School Year
After much thought and serious consideration, along with nearly 40 years working in the business of public education, I have officially decided to retire as Superintendent of the Oceanside Unified School District, effective June 30, 2014. The past seven years leading OUSD has been a fantastic and wonderful journey. Please know I am honored and humbled to have been blessed to oversee such a progressive and forward-moving district.
While I truly love serving our students and staff, and certainly feel strongly about the direction and path of the district, I believe the time has come for me to pursue other avenues in life. Most especially, I look forward to spending more quality time with my family.
The road I have traveled here in Oceanside has led to many wonderful relationships, both personally and professionally. Thank you to all who have supported the vision of the district and the mission of always keeping our children first on our list of priorities.
At this time, the Board of Education has yet to take any formal steps in determining a successor; however, I am confident that the next OUSD Superintendent will be more than qualified to sustain the progress we’ve experienced and what we have all helped to build together the past several years.
Again, thank you for allowing me to serve as your Superintendent.
