Alameda Unified Superintendent to Step Down

Alameda School Superintendent Sean McPhetridge will step down in June, according to an announcement from the school district.

“Superintendent McPhetridge and the District have reached an agreement, which was signed and accepted by unanimous vote of the Board, that he will be resigning his position as superintendent on June 30,” Board President Mia Bonta announced at a meeting last week. “We want to thank Superintendent McPhetridge for his service to AUSD, and we look forward to working with him in the coming months to help complete the school year and effect a smooth transition.”

McPhetridge has been in the job since February of 2015. Before that, he served as an assistant principal, a principal, Director of Secondary Education, and Co-Director of the former Oakland-Alameda Regional Occupational Program and Assistant Superintendent.

In a statement, McPhetridge said he was proud of the work he had accomplished as superintendent of AUSD. 

The district will use a search firm to secure McPhetridge’s replacement. Bids from prospective recruitment companies are due by March 7.
