It’s been a bit quiet on the superintendent search front, at least from the public’s perspective. That might soon change.
At a short meeting tomorrow (Wednesday) night that begins at 6 p.m., the Oakland school board settles on a timeline and process for the selection of the next OUSD leader. (That information wasn’t posted a few minutes ago, but I’ll link to it once it becomes available).
The board was once hoping to have someone lined up by April or May. From what I know about these searches, that doesn’t seem too realistic anymore.
What we do know is that Ray and Associates is on the job. I also hear that some old names are cropping up — or at least, that they’re putting themselves forward.
Would you rather see the board hire someone who already knows Oakland well, or someone with a fresh perspective?
