Area Superintendents


San Diego Unified School District is organized with six area superintendents. They serve as the ultimate point of contact for the schools in their areas and report to Superintendent Lamont Jackson.

An Area Superintendent is responsible for all schools and issues in his/her area. Locate your Area Superintendent by the high school cluster (middle school and elementary schools that feed into one another). There is one Area Superintendent responsible for all High Schools.

Here is the Area Superintendents’ Learning Communities.
