Dr. Hilda Maldonado took the helm of Santa Barbara Unified School District on July 1, 2020, becoming  the second female - and first Latina - to serve as Superintendent in the history of the district, founded in 1866.

Dr. Maldonado took over Santa Barbara Unified during one of the most challenging periods in the history of the district as the COVID-19 pandemic forced district schools to transform teaching & learning almost overnight. Her commitment to the wellbeing of students, families and staff has guided her leadership each step of the way.
