I wish him luck but am disappointed he walked away in less than two years. Maybe the kitchen was just too hot for him. I think a smart leader, who knows how to work with different groups, would find Seattle a good place to be.
end of update.
Heard from SPS Communications:
The Seattle School Board will hold a special meeting at 4:15 p.m. on Friday, July 18 to select an interim Superintendent to lead the District for the next year, as Superintendent José Banda is expected to be appointed as the next Superintendent of the Sacramento City Unified School District tonight.
The meeting will be televised live on Cable Channel 26 and streamed live on the Internet. Visit http://bit.ly/WatchSchoolBoard
I did verify that the Board will be debating candidates, choosing one tomorrow and, as well, may vote in a contract for that candidate at the meeting.
This is an open public meeting. I will be sitting in on the press conference that is to follow at 5 pm.
Any burning questions I should ask?
