MetroED head to retire
After 11 years leading the Metropolitan Education District (MetroED), superintendent Alyssa Lynch has announced plans to retire at the end of the 2023-24 school year.
Lynch came to MetroED in 2013 after working for the Santa Clara County Office of Education for nine years. She led MetroED’s conversion for from direct funding to local funding, opening up its free Silicon Valley Career Technical Education (SVCTE) courses to juniors and seniors across Santa Clara County. Until that conversion, SVCTE courses were available to students in the high school districts that are part of MetroED’s joint powers agreement.
Lynch plans to work through June. MetroED’s governing board hopes to have the new superintendent chosen in time for there to be an overlap with Lynch to facilitate a smooth transition.
