High school district promotes Rick Schmitt to Deputy Superintendent

Rick Schmitt, San Dieguito Union High School District’s associate superintendent of educational services, was recently promoted to the newly created position of Deputy Superintendent.

Schmitt will continue as head of educational services but in addition will act as the district’s superintendent when needed.

SDUHSD Superintendent Ken Noah said he expects to spend more time on oversight and implementation of facility capital improvements since the passage of Proposition AA in November, and will rely on Schmitt to be acting superintendent as necessary.

Schmitt’s annual salary of $162,265 will increase to $180,000. The reclassification begins Feb. 1 and continues through June 30, 2016 under the terms of the contract.
