The search for a new Santa Maria Joint Union High School District superintendent is underway and the public is being asked to weigh-in.

An online survey has been created to get input from students, staff, parents and community members.

The deadline was originally Friday but that has been extended now to 5 p.m. Sunday.

Questions range from major challenges the superintendent may face to qualities and characteristics believed to be important for the next superintendent to possess.

The nationwide search began earlier this year after Dr. Mark Richardson announced his retirement.

Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum and Instruction John Davis is currently acting superintendent.
