Raymond emerges from closed session

Updated Friday, July 24

The Sacramento Bee updates the story about the hiring of Jonathan Raymond in this morning’s paper with comments by Roy Grimes defending the board’s transparency issues and also Raymond’s salary

Reading down to the last paragraph of the article:

“He was a front-runner,” Grimes said. “He’s low-key, but no nonsense. … He intends to be very active in this community. He has committed to have his three kids attend our schools and live in the district.”


Last night, a special board meeting introduced Jonathan Raymond as SCUSD’s next superintendent. Susan Miller, who did not apply for the position, comments in the Sacramento Bee:

“I look forward to a new superintendent coming in with fresh eyes,” said Miller, who will return to her role as associate superintendent.

Miller said the next superintendent will walk into a difficult position because of limited resources and ongoing budget issues. She said she wonders what the effect of dwindling resources will be on students.

“Can we continue to provide the type of education our students deserve and parents expect?” Miller said. “That’s a challenge in these times when you’ve cut the amount of money districts have cut.”
