Tomorrow night, the Oakland school board and the public hear how the governor’s proposed mid-year cuts would affect the school district. The board also discusses an analysis of Oakland Unified’s budgeting system (which I blogged about the other week, here) by American Institutes for Research.
Meanwhile, the board is inching closer to hiring the school system’s first permanent superintendent in almost six years. Seven search firms think they have what it takes to find the right leader for OUSD, and a committee will soon form to pick a favorite, according to a document posted on the agenda.
What do you know about the below firms? (Well, other than the CSBA, which apparently recommended Stephen Wesley to the Emery school board without double-checking his resume.)
- California School Boards Association
West Sacramento, California
- Cascade Consulting Group
- Hazard, Young, Attea & Associates, Ltd.
- Leadership Associates
Mission Viejo, California
- Proact Search
- Ray and Associates, Inc.
Cedar Rapids, Iowa
- RBL Enterprises Ltd
