Stockton Unified narrows list of superintendent candidates

Stock Unified’s board of trustees has narrowed its list of superintendent candidates to five and will interview those finalists this weekend, according to The Stockton Record.

The candidates on Friday and Saturday will face questions from the board as well as from 21 community leaders, according to the newspaper.

AngelAnn Flores, the president of the board, told The Record that the board is looking for a superintendent who understands budgeting and hiring practices. Earlier this year, the San Joaquin County Office of Education said the district is deficit spending and expressed “serious” concerns over its budgeting.

“Somebody who understands that rebuilding means making tough decisions,” Flores said.
