SCUSD Observer

Sacramento, California

You can call them Ray…and Associates.

The SCUSD Board of Trustees has hired Ray and Associates to conduct an accelerated search for a new superintendent.

In a Birmingham, AL editorial last month, the firm was criticized for not thoroughly vetting a candidate that was ultimately hired to run the Birmingham school district and then forced to resign for integrity issues.

Ray and Associates is also currently involved in head-hunting for the new superintendents in the following school districts: Oakland Unified School District, Brevard County schools (Florida), the Williamson County Schools Board of Education (Tennessee), and Montgomery County Schools (Virginia).

At a special board meeting Thursday, SCUSD approved the firm’s contract and also determined the constituent group meetings (community engagement) that will take place during the process.

Will this search go right?
