Twin Rivers Seeks Public Input During Search For New Superintendent

NORTH SACRAMENTO – In a step toward stability, the Twin Rivers Unified School District is looking to hire a new Superintendent and is seeking the public’s help.

According the the district’s web site, the Superintendent’s Office is responsible for working closely with the district’s Board of Trustees, community, and staff to create and uphold district vision and goals. In addition the Superintendent sets “high performance standards and facilitates a climate in which each department works together in our mission of inspiring extraordinary achievement every day.”

Past Superintendent Frank Porter retired in June. Robert Ball, the district’s Associate Superintendent of Business Services, is serving as Interim Superintendent.

The public is invited to attend a Community Forum dedicated to the selection of an executive search firm that will perform the Superintendent search for the Twin Rivers Unified School District. The Community Forum is set for Saturday, August 18 and is to begin at 10:00 a.m. at the Twin Rivers Unified School District Office – Board Room, 5115 Dudley Blvd – Bay A, McClellan.

Following search firm presentations, members of the community will have the opportunity to submit questions that will be asked by the board members, based on their trustee area.

The Twin Rivers Unified School District was created in July 2008, merging four North Sacramento area school districts to serve 28,000 Preschool through 12th grade students. Of late the district has been mired by scandal, lawsuits and accusations of racism and discrimination.

The agenda for the forum is available on the Twin Rivers web site, www.twinriversusd.org/trustees/meetings/
