Gundry Named New Superintendent of Santa Clara County Office of Education
PUSD Deputy Superintendent Brian McDonald to Serve as Interim Superintendent
Pasadena Unified School District (PUSD) Superintendent Jon R. Gundry today announced his resignation as PUSD Superintendent following his selection July 16 as Superintendent of the Santa Clara County Office of Education (SCCOE). Gundry previously announced June 24 that he was the sole finalist for the SCCOE position. Gundry's resignation is effective July 31.
"It has been my privilege to serve the students and families of Pasadena Unified," said Gundry.
With an emphasis on 21st century learning, Gundry led the implementation of the district's Strategic Plan and Common Core State Standards. Under his leadership, the district entered into a partnership with the city of Pasadena as part of the School, City and Community Work Plan and won a multi-million dollar federal grant to create magnet schools in the district's historically underserved neighborhoods.
