Los Gatos Saratoga Unified High School District

Bill W. Sanderson joined LGSUHSD as the new Superintendent, on July 5, 2022. 

He has worked in public education for three decades in Charleston, SC, and San Francisco , beginning as a middle school science teacher in Summerville, SC, and then as Assistant Principal and Principal in Charleston, SC.

In 2003, Bill moved to San Francisco where he worked as a high school Biology teacher, Assistant Principal, Principal, and Executive Director.  He then served as Assistant Superintendent of San Francisco Unified for the past eight years and oversaw an increase in graduation rates for all students and implemented an Ethnic Studies program.
