TUSD School Board Gets to Superintendent Search at Tonight's Special Meeting

Posted By on Tue, Apr 2, 2013 at 1:49 PM

Tonight's Tucson Unified School District special meeting of the governing board is mostly about the search for the district's next superintendent.

The meeting opens at 4 p.m. at TUSD admin, 1010 E. 10th St. The board goes into executive session the top of the meeting to talk about personnel issues related to outgoing Superintendent John Pedicone, who announced his resignation last month. Also on the agenda is looking at what reads like a public records request "exempt by law from public inspection." Gotta love the executive session portion of agendas.

The public portion of the meeting tonight opens at 6 p.m. when board members are expected to vote on what just took place in executive — will be interesting to see how much discussion will take place in public. The action item is to approve recruitment and the hiring process for the next superintendent.

In other TUSD related news: at the next regular TUSD governing board meeting on Tuesday, April 9, an action is being planned by UNIDOS at 1010 that starts at 5:30 p.m.

From UNIDOS:

UNIDOS has been organizing a "Rally" for April 9th in response to the 11 school closures that TUSD has agreed too. After much discussion with board members, we are tired of their excuses and we are demanding that they "find the money and stop school closures." We hope you can support us and come to this event at TUSD Headquarters.

If you can donate water and/or snacks for this event, please bring them to Derechos Humanos office, 631 S. 6th Ave, between April 2nd and April 9th.
