Dear CUSD Families and Staff,


The Superintendent search is proceeding as scheduled in our timeline. 


The candidate pool was 29 deep and included many highly qualified educators from nine states, with more than a dozen from California.


Seven of these applicants have been selected by the board for first round interviews scheduled April 19th.  Each applicant selected for an interview was carefully vetted using the Leadership Profile and stakeholder input, as well as background research, reference checks, and a thorough screening interview.  These, first round, semi-finalist interviews will be conducted remotely, as per current health requirements for gathering.  HYA has drafted a set of interview questions based on the Leadership Profile and relevant scenarios. Board members will be reviewing these and adding additional questions as necessary. Following the interviews, a slate of finalists will be determined for second round interviews, scheduled for April 23rd.

Thank you,

Sara Hinds, Board President
Tess Arthur, Board Clerk
