Elk Grove Unified expects to name a replacement for retiring Superintendent Steven Ladd by the end of September.

The school board serving the 62,000-student district will select a search committee at its Tuesday night meeting. The panel will consist of district employees, students, parents and community members.

Ladd, 62, plans to retire Sept. 12 after leading the district for more than nine years, which currently makes him the longest-tenured superintendent at a large local district in the Sacramento area. His salary is $273,195.

The deadline to apply for the district’s top job is Wednesday. The school board is scheduled to select finalists for the job on Sept. 3 and hold interviews for the position Sept. 5-8. The district should name a superintendent by the end of September, said district spokeswoman Elizabeth Graswich.

Elk Grove Unified officials have held eight community events and 25 stakeholder meetings to gather information about the types of characteristics the public is seeking in a new superintendent, Graswich said. The district is also gathering community input through an online survey at www.egusd.net.
