ABCUSD Board of Education Selects New Superintendent


Dear ABC Staff and Community, 


The Board of Education is pleased to announce the selection of Dr. Gina Zietlow as the next Superintendent of the ABC Unified School District. The final decision is pending Board approval at our May 2nd meeting. The Board consulted Leadership Associates to conduct a nationwide search, and Dr. Zietlow stood out regarding furthering our students' safety, mental health supports, and academic achievement. Dr. Zietlow brings 29 years of experience in ABCUSD in various capacities. 


Dr. Gina Zietlow earned a Bachelor of Arts in English from Biola University, a Master of Arts in Instruction from Biola University, and a Doctor of Education in Organizational Leadership from the University of La Verne.  She was an English teacher, cheer advisor, and activities director for many years before becoming the assistant principal and then principal at Gahr High School, where she was named the Secondary Principal of the Year in California by the National Association of Secondary School Principals, the State Secondary Principal of the Year by the Association of California School Administrators (ACSA), and the ACSA Region 14 Secondary Principal of the Year. She has spent the past seven years in Human Resources, with the last six years as Assistant Superintendent.


Please join me in congratulating Dr. Zietlow for leading our award-winning district into the future as our next Superintendent.
