First-round decision made on superintendent
Original post made by RWE, South of Midtown, on Apr 19, 2007
A few things I'm curious about. How is it that if PAUSD claims to hire the "best and brightest" that we can't hire a Superintendent from within? My assumption is that there are no PAUSD candidates in this group. [I hope that assumption is wrong] When was the last time that a PAUSD employee was considered for the Superintendent's position?? Why are we - time and time again, bringing in career Superintendants who stay - at most - 5 years, taking at least one year of their tenure to get up to speed on culture and everyday operations.
Also, one thing that hasn't been mentioned, but shuold be included as a prerequisite for the new Superintendent is that s/he _must_ be _very_ proactive with our city government. This is a _must_, as bond and parcel tax issues for various initiatives are going to have to be well coordinated between the city and PAUSD from now on. The outgoing Superintendent remained non-involved and aloof from city affairs. This _cannot_ be the case with the new Superintendant, not of our city and school system are to find new ways to create efficiencies and economies with each other.
