From the Superintendent! 

Dear LGSUHSD Families and Staff,

Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year!  I am Bill Sanderson, your new district Superintendent, and am honored, humbled and excited to join the Los Gatos – Saratoga Union High School District and look forward to the opportunity to serve you all.

This is your second year of in person instruction, since Covid, and yet we continue to feel the effects and are committed to supporting each of you – in the classroom and around campus – as   you return to campus and throughout the year.  School climate and the social/emotional wellbeing of our students, staff and school community continue to be a priority.  We will monitor Covid information and any updates to ensure your health and safety.  And we will continue to provide the best possible teaching and learning environment that ensures students and staff thrive and feel valued.

As you return to campus, you’ll see evidence of these commitments.  A busy summer at SHS resulted in new HVAC/roofing in much needed areas of campus and this fall will see a renovated Engineering lab and all weather ball field.  We are transitioning to a BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) environment to ensure equitable access for all students and allow student choice - use their personal device or check out a Chromebook from the district.  The district’s partnership with Care Solace is designed to reduce barriers to accessing mental health services for students and staff and will be available 24/7; student and staff leaders have been trained in Sources of Strength, a youth suicide prevention program; and our school’s Wellness Centers continue to provide early intervention and mental heath services and substance abuse services. 

Many of you already know, I was born and raised in Loris, South Carolina. The opportunities afforded to me by education are what brought me here, and I am compelled to provide the same and more opportunities to the young people I serve than those that were given to me. It is what has driven me since September 3, 1984, the day I entered college.  I look forward to partnering with each of you to examine, continue, create and enhance opportunity, so that students thrive, staff excel and communication and transparency allow and promote collaborative, respectful, ongoing dialogue and learning - for us all.  

On behalf of myself, the Board of Trustees and your school and district leadership teams, welcome to the 2022-2023 school year.  We can accomplish great things together.

Bill W. Sanderson , LGSUHSD Superintendent
