Jose L. Banda
Last four years as super for Anaheim City School district with 20k students. From the media release:
Mr. Banda also developed strong relationships with the business community, city government and service organizations, as evidenced by an innovative math partnership with the MIND Institute and the successful passage of a $170 million construction bond in 2010.
Mr. Banda spent 13 years as a secondary administrator, including eight years as a high school principal before becoming the Superintendent of the Planada School District from 2002-2005. Before Anaheim, Mr. Banda was the Deputy Superintendent at Oceanside Unified School District. He has also served as a high school counselor, Assistant Superintendent of Human Resources and board member for Salida Union School District. He brings over 30 years of experience in the field of education.
Mr. Banda is fluent in Spanish and holds a Bachelor of Arts from California State University in Bakersfield and a Master’s in Educational Leadership from Chapman University.
Steven W. Enoch
Last four years as superintendent of 30k student San Ramon Valley Unified School District.
During this time, the District experienced continuous academic improvement, becoming the top-achieving large school district in the state of California.
Under Mr. Enoch’s leadership, the District changed teaching and learning through a massive infusion of technology and community partnerships in support of Career and Technical Education (CTE) and Science Technology Engineering and Math (STEM).
Mr. Enoch spent 13 years as a principal in California before becoming the Superintendent of the San Juan Island School District in Friday Harbor, Wash., where he served for seven years. He also served as Superintendent of the Mead, Wash. School District from 2002-2005. Before working in San Ramon, Mr. Enoch was the Superintendent at San Juan Unified School District, a 45,000-student district in Sacramento, Calif.
Dr. Sandra L. Husk
Last six years as superintendent of the 40k Salem-Keizer School district in Oregon.
Dr. Husk started her career as an elementary counselor and teacher in the St. Vrain Valley School District in Colorado. She has been a Superintendent since 1996, first at Mapleton Public Schools in Denver and then at Clarksville Montgomery County School System in Tennessee from 2001-2006.
Husk has worked at the biggest district as superintendent but I'd have to check the size where the other two have worked prevously in other jobs.
Enoch has a local connection having been at Friday Harbor.
I like that Blanda is bi-lingual. It brings something good to the table.
All of them worked in schools as either a teacher or counselor or principal.
The media will be having 15-minute (too short!) interviews with all three candidates separately next week.
