SAUSD names interim superintendent

The OC Register is reporting that Jane Russo, a deputy superintendent, will be serving as the interim superintendent while a search firm tries to find someone to permanently replace Al Mijares, the outgoing superintendent.

I don’t know much about Russo – but I know that the many teachers who read this blog will surely pitch in with their comments. I am also curious as to who the possible candidates to replace Mijares might be.

I truly believe that we need to hire a turnaround specialist with crisis management experience. Mijares was way over his head throughout his 12 year tenure. This time we need to hire someone who knows what he is doing – and who will do it ethically.
