UPDATE: Here’s the story that ran yesterday.
Also, a reader alerted me to blog coverage from 2009 regarding spending habits of HUSD’s new associate superintendent of educational services, from back when she was associate supt. at San Francisco Unified School District.
With Newark Unified’s hiring of a new permanent superintendent, HUSD Supt. Janis Duran will only be doing consulting for that district, and says Hayward will “keep me plenty busy.” She has agreed to stick around until a new supt. is found – the first round of candidates didn’t yield someone that board members could agree on, so the search continues. They did get the newly hired Associate Superintendent of Educational Services out of the process, though, and they’ll talk about her contract at a special Friday morning meeting, I’m planning to follow that with a story. Recommended compensation: $183,272. Find the meeting agenda and contract here.
Talked with board President Brunner this a.m., mainly about budget and grand jury report stuff, but we touched on the hire. She said it’s cost neutral, and is considered an important hire because they’re without a long-term superintendent for the time being, and this position will be focused on improving academics for all students. Will have more after Friday mtg.
