At a special meeting last Friday, February 19, 2021, two search firms presented their case to the Board as to why they should be selected to support the district in the search for our next superintendent. Following the search firm presentations and related questions from the Board, and an in-depth discussion, the Board unanimously selected Hazard, Young, Attea, & Associates (HYA) to conduct the CUSD superintendent search.
District staff has begun the process to advertise the position through ACSA’s EdCal, the leading source for California school administrator job searches. Our intent is to have another special board meeting on February 26, 2021 which will serve as a planning session with HYA consultants and the Board. Thereafter we will provide updates as the search progresses. During our March 10, 2021 meeting we will provide an in-depth update.
The Board is very aware of our community’s sense of urgency around this search and we share your desire to move things along quickly. Know that we are moving as efficiently as possible and we will continue to keep you informed and engaged throughout this process.
Sara Hinds, Board President Tess Arthur, Board Clerk
