San Diego Unified isn’t the only local school district with a new superintendent: Grossmont Union High School District announced today that it has tentatively chosen Ralf Swenson, a longtime educator who previously served as the superintendent of Nevada Joint Union High School District, as its new leader.

Unlike San Diego Unified, Grossmont used a headhunting firm to find its new chief. A press release from the school district announced:

“Our Board is unanimous in our selection of Mr. Swenson. He is an exceptional educator with a passion for improving and enhancing educational opportunities for all secondary students, including Career Technical Education. He is also committed to building positive relationships with teacher leaders and staff across the District. We have confidence that Mr. Swenson will be a collaborative and student-centered leader who will help our schools and students succeed.” said School Board President Robert Shield.
