Orcutt Union School District’s superintendent has announced her retirement.

The district says Dr. Deborah Blow has spent the last 40 years as an educator and the 2019-2020 school year will be her last.

“This decision for me is bitter sweet, as I still love the work, and particularly the students, staff, and families of the Orcutt Union School District,” she said. “However, I need to put my family first. My husband and I will celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary in June, and due to our careers, we have spent much of that time working in separates states. I look forward to a slower pace and spending more time with him."

Blow added, “I make this announcement confident that the district is in a good place, and with great pride with everything that we have accomplished together in the past six years. I know that our district will continue to thrive and provide a great education to our students.”

Leadership Associates has been hired to lead the search for Dr. Blow’s replacement.

All staff, parents, guardians, family members, and community members are being asked to complete this survey related to the search.
