The Board partnered with an executive search firm to conduct a competitive hiring process, which included gathering and reviewing community feedback from DJUSD staff, students, families and members of the Davis community. The Board received 28 applications and interviewed three out of seven top-tier candidates before reaching a final decision.

“I learned from the Superintendent search that Davis Joint Unified School District attracts outstanding candidates and that we are able to select the most qualified person,” says DJUSD Board President Tom Adams.“Matt Best has the knowledge and skills to be a Superintendent, but more importantly, he has the heart of a parent and teacher.”

The DJUSD Board of Education will formally approve Matt Best’s employment as Superintendent of DJUSD at the regularly scheduled Board meeting on April 21, 2022.
