Update on BUSD Superintendent Search

Josh Daniels, Vice President of the Berkeley School Board, recently sent out an update on the Superintendent Search, which is shared below. I've been very pleased with how communicative the board and district have been with the community about this process. I attended one of the community forums and found the representatives from Ray and Associates to be very open to community feedback so that we find the best leader for our district. This is a critical process, as the new superintendent will lead the charge to ensuring we achieve 2020 Vision and closing the equity gap in Berkeley Public Schools.

I'm quoted in an article about the superintendent search in the Oakland Tribune:
"Addressing the achievement gap should not be "just rhetoric," said Jenny Mulholland-Beahrs, a teacher trainer whose husband is a Berkeley High teacher. The candidate should demonstrate support for early childhood programs and have experience addressing the "disproportionate number of kids of color being suspended and expelled," she said." 

Here is Josh Daniel's update:
