Vallejo school board set to hire new superintendent – Times Herald

By John Glidden

The Vallejo school board is expected to announce the hiring of a new permanent district superintendent during its meeting Wednesday night.

Trustees met in closed session at the Antioch Unified School District on Aug. 28 to interview a potential candidate for the position.

The name of the applicant has not been released by the district.

A divided board in March fired longtime superintendent Ramona Bishop.

Trustees Tony Ubalde and Burky Worel opposed the firing, while trustees Bob Lawson, Marianne Kearney-Brown, and Ruscal Cayangyang approved.

Divided along the same lines, the board in May approved the hiring of Leadership Associates to assist the district in selecting a new superintendent.

The firm was the most expensive from a group of four firms interviewed, and will cost the district $32,500.
